Hi all, I am interested in building a abrasive blast cabinet. I did a little searching on Google and turned up very little. Anyone have some plans or know where I can get some? Approximate dimensions? Height off floor? Depth and width are application dependent. Thanks, Michelle
I've got an old Projects in Metal Magazine with plans for a cabinet, but they're not very detailed. Should show the basics, though. I could scan and email these if you don't find anything else you like.
I used the plywood crate a mill drill came in. Caulked the seams, painted the inside white. added cleats for expanded metal floor to hold projects above the upside down pyrimide that funnels the sand back to the hopper. Used 2 x2 for legs. The opening is covered with window glass sealed with foam weather strip. I did buy a dust collector type vaccum for the dust because I use it mosty for removing rust. That and sand silca dust is bad for the lungs.
One suggestion I have is that you purchase a sandblast gun from TP Tools and put it in whatever cabinet.
I bought a Harbor Freight sandblast cabinet for $200 and a U.S. made gun from TP made it a pleasure to use. You can see the sand coming out of the U.S. gun, the Chinese gun looks similar but wouldn't blast loose rust off
1/4 steel plate.
After all you want to remove paint and rust EASILY right?
P.S. I have visited your web site. Do you have a sister that's single? (GRIN!) Somewhere I saw that your "to do" list included annualing your boyfriends airplane. WOW!

Interesting thought. I have a "stacked" washer dryer that is about to retire. The drier section is at shoulder level. There is already a sloped panel from the front lower edge of the top section to the back of the unit. If the door had a glass.........
