    Picked up a sand blaster

    sounds like you are making good progress on the compressor. A running motor is always a good thing to have!! :-D

    Picked up a sand blaster

    with that size of compressor and size blast pot, 50 feet would be easily handled. The only real problem you run into with added length is pressure drop in the hose...when you're running 100 to 125 PSI, a pound or two isn't too much concern. My smaller pot has 25 foot of hose and it's just...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    Stretch, you're right about the pipe, I forgot about the I.D. being a bit smaller. From the chart I saw, the 3/8 nozzle would still use about 211 and 238 CFM at 90 and 100 PSI. That's still a ton of air!!! Grainger should have the dead man valves if you can't find them anywhere else.

    looks like you beat me to the info I was asking about. You'll want to post you question in "The Deuce" section located here The Deuce - Steel Soldiers::Military Vehicles Supersite

    Picked up a sand blaster

    First off welcome to the site. I'm going to try to say this as politely as possible, this is the totally wrong thread for that question. Plus there is very little information in your question, the biggest piece of missing information would be...what kind of truck??? There are specific areas...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    I was doing some research on my blaster. I have an older model ALC blaster, made right here in the good old USA. It's a 250# blaster, meaning it holds 250 pounds of media for those who didn't already know. Using the measurements in Stretches pictures, the one you guys have is probably a 350#...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    Gimp, that bigger head that I posted a picture of, is rated at I think 45 CFM at 175 PSI, of course more at a lower pressure because it doesn't have to work as hard (that's from the manufacturers website). The one on my compressor is just like it only a different manufacturer. It does not have...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    not my mower deck...lol It's a 6 foot 3 point trail mower. It took my about an hour to do the deck when I did it. But that was a lot of waiting for the compressor to build back up. I didn't want to overheat the compressor, so I would blast until the compressor came on and continue for a...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    I can't find any information about the manufacturer of the compressor head other than they make a lot of high pressure compressors, 3000 PSI. But I did find a parts breakdown from another manufacturer "Saylor Beall". The head is not identical, but it's as close as I can find to what I have.

    Picked up a sand blaster

    The one I have and am using now is a single cylinder, single stage probably 12 to 15 CFM at 90 PSI with a 30 gallon tank. The monster sitting waiting on an engine is a 2 cylinder 2 stage beast at almost 50 CFM at 175 PSI with a 120 gallon tank. It had a 10 HP 3 phase motor on it when I picked...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    Here are a few pictures of mine. The tank is a little different, but they seem to be about the same size. I haven't installed the air/water separator yet because my compressor does a pretty good job of keeping the moisture out. But after I get the shop build and get an engine on the monster...
