Is there a Portable Abrasive Blaster available for around $200 that I can use with my DeWalt 5CFM, 200PSI Air Compressor?

Check Harbor Freight. They sell several pressure pots for under $200. I have a 100 lb unit I use for small jobs and as a loaner (much better to loan the blaster then do the blasting for them). The size of the nozzle is what determines how much air you need not the size of the pot. 5 CFM isn't much for blasting, you will be spending lots of time waiting for the compressor to catch up. You always wanted a bigger compressor anyway, didn't you?

No. You will need much much more air. 20 cfm compressors struggle.

and I'd add to that advice that when you go with a smaller nozzle - expect more clogs.

can get very frustrating.
