I bought this one at HF yesterday. $35 + $44 for 50lbs. glass bead 80 grit
Think I will go back and get the Aluminum Oxide 70 grit to be a little more aggressive. It worked best after I shortened the hose and put it up higher than my work.
It worked good enough on the part shown.
I only have a 26gal 2.5 Horse compressor but it kept up pretty well. Need to invest in a water separator/filter.
Made this Blast cabinet yesterday too. Plastic bin, an extra-large garbage bag with a hand hole in each corner.
Made one hole big enough to put the part through and the blaster gun. Poured the media back into the blaster through the smaller hole without removing the bag.
Collected the media pretty well. Need a more transparent bin though. It was just what I had laying around. Maybe I'll cut a hole and put a plexi window in...
Was looking at this one for $119.99... I would have to put it on a cart and maybe get a Bar-B-Que cover for it since I don't have anywhere to put it.
