(quoted from post at 01:42:52 05/05/21) My compressor is a16 scfm maybe I should look at the smaller blaster .


Size of the blaster makes no difference, it's the size of the blast tip that matters. Small tip, less air required.

I had a HF and it didn't work that well. I bought one off eBay that works much better. The blast hose is 3/4 inch air hose. Of course I have a 100 cfm compressor to run it.

I have one. Works pretty good on parts especially. Minor cloggage issues. I bought a longer hose for it from some industrial supply place. I like the shredded corncobs . Gives you a nice finish to paint. The hood is not real good.

i have one of those and the sand always plugs at the bottom valve. just like it gets moisture from the compressor. i even had a 100 gallon propane tank after the compressor tank. plus the tip plugs up. its just a slow process with those things.

I bought that exact sand blaster at HF. First time we used it with a bag of play sand. Constant plugging. the 2-3 gallon pails of blast media HF sells worked fine. I bought a 27 CFM compressor specifically to run a sand blaster, a 5 hp 15-16 cfm is not really enough. I've blasted a lot with ground & crushed quartz thats $10/100# bag, it wears the sand blasting gun and ceramic nozzles, but that's why they show them also for sale on the same page, BUY spares, you will need them. A 100# of blast media wears out a nozzle. The hood included is trash, use a full face mask and buy several replacement masks. And a good respitator is needed too.
So, buy the time you buy the blaster, and the sand, and the personal protective equipment, it gets kinda expensive to blast parts, especially big parts. But it does remove thick rust and old paint better than anything else. Ohh, I bought a Coellescing air filter/regulator to feed the blasting pot, it pulls ALL the water vapor out of the air. Something else to buy!
Dad had a guy sand-blast and repaint his 450 FARMALL. It was an excellent example of a 50 Foot Paint Job blasting sand under the paint, the paint breaks between colors were So-So. They broke a couple emblems, and it was very expensive. Worst thing was they blew the breather off the Lift-All system under the hood and got lots of sand in the hyd system, took another trip to town to fix that which made the paint job even more expensive. The guy's day job at the blaster/paint shop were painting bridges & overpasses on the Interstate. CHECK YOUR PAINTER'S REFERENCES!

Got rid of my cabinet sand blaster , pain the neck ,grit dust every where , and time to clean up the mess , Burnt up the 5 hp motor ,on or compressor . Cost more than it worth, you decide cause your needs are different. I could never see to get it clean the way I wanted it,. Dust in cabinet, even with filter,and always replacing windows coverings when I could get them.
Quality of media matching to the work piece ,all adds up,dont use play sand has silicates cuts up the lungs,
When took it to a professional ,that did it for way less in time and money. The cabinet was gone.
