    Abrasive Blast Cabinet

    It needs a few modifications to work as well as I'd like but it's better than my previous Harbor Freight model. Add a light, deflector at the vacuum discharge and reseal it and you're a long way towards a nice unit.

    Yep, and I've looked at that one. It's sold by multiple vendors under multiple names.

    The Harbor Freight one was worth the few extra $ for size alone, much less a better design.

    If you do some Internet searching, you can find online plans for constructing a blast cabinet on a DIY basis.

    However, I agree with Dr. Vette, the HF cabinet is better than the TSC (Clarke) cabinet. One time that HF junk is better junk.:D

    Didn't know TP was srill around. Been to their showroom (in Canfield, Ohio) before and they also offer some nice, high capacity compressors as well.

    Sandblasting or bead blasting requires large amounts of compressed air at high pressure so a sizeable compressor is also required as well as moisture removal from the compressed air.

    I have a Quincy QP 5.5 horse compressor on a 150 gallon receiver and an IR Reftigerated air dryer to keep the air conditioned....
