sand blast cabinet

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

sand blast cabinet

Postby ScottyD'sdad » Mon Oct 29, 2012 8:55 am

I've started the "design phase" of a sand blast cabinet, being made from a 275 gallon home heating oil tank. This will give me a 28 inch deep, 5 foot wide, cabinet. I need to open the bottom of the tank, to make a tapered area, to direct the sand to the pick up pipe. A door will be cut into the right side end, a little over 2 feet, square. This will allow a cub rear rim, to fit. I'll buy the window and glove kits, from TP tool. 12 x33 inch window, should be sufficient. I have a massive old air compressor, currently at the county agricultural high school, for evaluation, to power it. THe compressor was pumping a lot of oil, so it will likely be rebuilt, at the school. (Ingersol Rand, type 30, model 5 30 S, with a 5 hp. motor, as big around as a 5 gallon bucket)
I don't do pictures, but I can probably bribe Bob Perry, to come over and take some. I should be out there, now, instead of sitting at the computer! Ed

I know you "don't do pictures", but I can actually picture this project just from the description. Do see if you can con Bob into coming over to take pics of your project. I am looking forward to seeing the completed blast cabinet.
