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.

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.

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.

Very happy with this cabinet blaster. I suggest dry fitting cabinet and lower funnel with a few fasteners making sure corners are overlaped properly before using silicone as it can be messy.Instruction text missed a few things but looking at the parts diagram was helpful.I used a 60w. sealed deck light instead of the 12v. flourescent. I also put a rubber mat on top of the diamond bottom plate of the cabinet and the back wall where the gun will usually be pointed as prolonged use will wear through those spots.

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.

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.

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

Purchased on sale for $199. I found the instruction details terrible if any. Seams leaked even after using silicone during assembly. Cleaned out cabinet and sealed everything again, even glass, this time no leaks. Found door was catching on the top of the front leg when closed allowing glass and dust to escape through a small gap. I installed filter material I had here in the back vent, just by friction fit, to allow air into the cabinet for the vacuum to have air flow to remove dust, and keep the glass in, works great. a piece of pink insulation would probably work to. I also bought a filter bag for the shop vac, the fine one for drywall dust. To cut down on the dust inside inside the cabinet, I changed from glass to fine natural sand, not silica sand, I can actually see what I am doing now, and no more dusty mess. After everything was sealed, Its not a bad little cabinet for the money.

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!

I just spent the weekend assembling this unit trying to figure out where everything goes. Typical offshore instructions have to be studied very carefully. While assembling it I used a full tube of silicone sealer on all the joints and bolts so I have no leakage at all. With the 110 volt fluorescent light from my old Harbour Freight cabinet installed, I am now good to go. With it being air tight now, I can't have my shop vac hooked up and running as the cabinet wants to implode like the Titanic. I already had to fix some broken seams and bent sheet metal so now I just have the hose hooked up and turn it on when I'm finished to clean out the hose. Other than that, it seems like good value for the dollar especially when purchased at the sale price!

I decided to silicone seal all the seams after reading the reviews. The instructions are pretty useless. Surely in this day and age Princess Auto can leverage a supplier to create a better manual than this. After partial assembly I had to take it apart as I had the overlapping seams wrong. The manual made no mention of the correct overlap. but then as we are Princess Auto men, i guess we should be able to use our intuition and figure this out. I did modify the pick up tube slightly so that the angle of the hose to the gun did not kink the hose. The kit came with a light switch but no light. After re-reading the manual closely it did state that the light was extra. I had a surplus 12 inch fluorescent available and installed that instead. I will expand upon my review later this winter once I have a few hours under my belt. It seems to give enough light but ill review that again after a few hours of use.

Q

Not mentioned in the parts list or instructions, there are 3 rolls of adhesive foam tape and one roll of very thin white tape. What are these used for? I can guess the foam is to seal the cabinet and funnel seams but I have no idea what that skinny white tape is for.

The very thin white tape is Teflon tape for sealing the threaded parts on the gun.

Q

Sandblasting will pit glass, Lexan etc. How does this sandblaster protect the window from the sandblasting effects? How long will the window last before having to replace it.

EP

CSR

April 03, 2012

A

The glass is protected by a plastic film that is replaceable. Our SKU's 8055515 or 8006652. For longevity, it depends on how much blast media hits the shield.
