Homebrew abrasive blaster?

I'm considering building a sand blast gun and wonder if anyone has ever done it. Any tips appreciated. I'm turning a 55 gallon drum into a blasting cabinet.

Yep, done this a while back and its been one great piece of equipment in my small home shop. I origianllly used a cheap import gun and pickup tube, but have since bought and installed a Tip Tools gun and tube, and the performance has increased dramtically.

Those PVC toilet bowl flanges used to munt a toiltet to a floor are just about right for flanges to mount your goves on in the cabinet if you don't have to big of hands. You could always rollem out of sheet metal as well. I have some pics and some notes on mine on my website on the Projects PAge. Visit my website:

Yes, I bought one of TP Tools' cabinet kits for my "homebrew" and used it for several years... more recently I bought one of their complete cabinet blasters (vast improvement loading, changing media, and viewing parts while blasting):
