After one year of use, it's time to write a review. I am very satisfied base on this: First, I bouhgt on sale. Second, I read all reviews from previous owner and I took the time to assemble it properly with caulking. I use it with the proper garage vacuum and two batteries LED lights on magnet. So, the ratio price/quality is excelent.

I just bought one and can't say enough good things about it . I am using it in my basement workshop and when connected to a dust collector I find it is a perfectly good unit for it's size.

This is a very good cabinet.it works well and is a must purchase for those who need to sand blast small to medium parts. This cabinet can also blast glass panels for doors and windows to give then an etched finish on the glass. You can etch patterns on all types of objects by applying an adhesiveness rubber pattern to your object.

I bought one of these a while ago. It works great. If you have ever worked with sand in the past you know it will get out of anywhere. With that in mind during assembly I put weather strip in all joints. It's sealed tight, and is a great unit for the applications I use it for.

This is a bolt together cabinet so you have to seal the joints. I use a 6 HP vacuum and a cyclone to collect the dust. I use a pressure blaster for this cabinet and it cuts the work time in half or less. This is a great unit for home shop or light duty use and it certainly is an affordable solution compared to an expensive welded commercial unit.

I have completely sealed the cabinet during assembly with silicone. It works perfectly! The only problem was the light, he worked one hour and it was not powerful enough. rnrnFor abrasive media I use glass blast medium grain. This does not work perfectly when it is full of new, but after about 20 minutes, the new and old mixes and gives good results.

double sided tape was a joke-instructions are a farce-and no light kit!!!! but once you seal it all up with calking and wrap your mind around the instructions...a great deal and fairly quality machine, the only thing I put through mine is glass beads for small parts and I had to find a large enough pail to sit under the floor drain due to the poor fit flap, but yeah its a great addition to the garage....should have waited for it to go on sale though

I purchased this unit for light business use. Easy to assemble. The easy-open clean out on the bottom is a good feature. The cabinet leaked at the seams, so I silliconed them all and no further problems. I have had a few different commercial units in the past and this one works just as good. Good value for the price. For those who have never used one before, buy a cheap shop-vac preferably with a fabric filter that can be shook out and cleaned and hook this up to the cabinet to keep the dust clean.

I purchased this cabinet about 5 months ago. I am restoring an older car and wanted something to clean corrosion off some parts. The instructions are terrible - the kit comes with 3 different thicknesses of foam tape and no explaination as to where to or even if you should use them. I can tell you that every seam will leak unless sealed. I opted for just assembling it and trying it out.... It works well, but over and above the leaking seams, I found that the air supply hose to the gun was constantly coming off as the fittings were chromed. I ran some emery cloth over them and have not had an issue with that since. I also found that the plastic film that goes inside the view glass needs to be changed frequently but since I was blasting irregular larger parts and having a lot of sand hitting the glass, this is to be expected. I am running Princess Auto's crushed glass and it seems to work very well. I have worn out the first 50 pounds and am about to replace it. The cabinet seems to need exactly one 50 pound bag, so this works out well. The glovees are fairly small but I am assured that PA is getting in larger replacement gloves. The gloves are of very good quality, just small for my meathooks. This is not a professional cabinet, but for the price (especially when it goes on for half price), it is an excellent investment for a home garage. Just be sure to have a large compressor- I was running my 20 gallon for 5 minutes to sandblast for about 1 1/2 minutes until I got a 60 gallon compressor, and seal those seams. I used aluminum ducting tape and have had no issues since. All in all, a good unit, and excellent when half price!

Had the smaller bench top unit and liked it, but couldn't do anything larger than a bracket so I got this unit, unit comes on a flat box and must be assembled, lots of screws and it will take at least a tube of silicone to caulk the joints as you assemble the unit, the joint MUST be caulked or abrasive will leak out, the door doesn't seal perfectly, just add some foam weather seal to the inside of the door until all gaps are closed, expect a full evening at the least, may take two/three evenings to assemble. Also a 60 gallon 240v compressor is a must, anything smaller just cannot keep up, motor will run continuously and never give enough air pressure to properly blast your projects, even with my 60 gallon I must give it a break now and then on larger pieces, I use glass bead and love this new cabinet, there have been a few mods to get it to my level, I drilled out the exhaust port to 2

I bought this item on sale. It works quite well. I will agree with others that it must be sealed with silicone to keep the dust in. The hose for the pickup is quite flimsy and kept kinking when I would use it and stop the grit from getting through to the gun. I replaced the hose with a firmer one and it never kinks. The light that is available for the cabinet is a joke. Save your money and get a flourescent tube style. A vacuum is also recommended for the dust. All in all a decent buy.

I not assembled it for now but I unpacked it and made a first assessement, it will be fine if assembled with silicone caulking. from my past experience, I will modify the blast gun to cancel air valve and install a foot air valve with a strainer to eliminate free flow and I will install a blow gun to dust my parts before opening the door. I will make a metal frame to the plastic access door and install a better catch as I want a flawless performance when I'll, put it in service I'll replace the catch with a bolt on the bottom dust trap as the catch will not sqeeze the gasket sufficiently to insure a good seal I'll look for a better way to access to the window protection film as in my setup the access will be difficult briefly, it is a good base to make an excellent blast cabinet All the reviews on this product are very useful as I knew what I buy and I can plan improvements to do before beginning assembly

Q

When I hook up my shop vac to this cabinet, it sucks the gloves right out of the holders. Am I doing something wrong??

KEWL

July 14, 2015

A

The sandblasting gloves are affixed in place on the holder using the glove clamps. If firmly affixed, and your shop vacuum can pull the gloves off of the holder, you can attach them by using the entire glove mounting ring to bolt them into place. This would require you to make a small cut on the base of the gloves, so that they can be held tightly between the cabinet, and the mounting ring.

Q

I have problem with sand getting clogged in pick up hose. What grit size blasting compound should I use????

KEWL

July 10, 2015

A

The gun included with this unit is suitable for use with a number of abrasives, including aluminum oxide, glass bead, steel shot, and copper slag. Both coarse and fine grits would be useable with this unit, as it uses a 5 mm nozzle, so most likely the clogging you are experiencing is caused by either moisture in the lines, or a lack of pressure. Install an air dryer in-line before the sandblaster to eliminate moisture issues. Ensure that you have no leaks in any of your lines, and that all fittings are sealed with thread tape. As well, you can try increasing operating pressure to 120 PSI.

Q

What else does this cabinet require besides air for blasting? It must need one of the tanks to hold the sand and feed it into the air stream. What is recommended?

KEWL

May 22, 2015

A

This unit includes everything required to do sandblasting, save for the air supply. The bottom of the unit acts as a hopper for the suction-style gun included with this cabinet. It is also recommended to put an air regulator, and air dryer in-line before this unit for optimized performance.
