    Picked up a sand blaster

    Thanks for the link, I got it running with help from the guys at Binderbench.com. Just needs some fine tuning.

    Picked up a sand blaster

    Well 2 days ago I tried to turn it over and the motor locked up on me. I pulled the plugs and shot some atf in the cyls. I was busy yesterday so today I went over and tried to start it again. No luck. I pulled the compressor section off the motor and figured out how to turn the flywheel in...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    So I ended up grabbing a Joy air compressor, 150 cfm for cheap. It has an International Harvester slant 4 motor to power the comp. Anyone know anything about these motors to check BEFORE I try to fire it up? It is in poor condition, but I will try to bring her up to "full mission capable"...

    Ok Stretch, pics of the air filter housing. I have at least 5 of the filters for it.

    Picked up a sand blaster

    So thanks to the great members of this site, we might have a nozzle and blast hood. Does anyone know how much line is too much from the blaster? Stretch was thinking 50ft. The output is 1.25 inch, I figure we should use hose that is the same size. Anyone?

    Oh, the comp is a 190 cfm unit.

    Picked up a sand blaster

    The comp. is stored in the basement of thr big barn. It isn't used inside. We had thought about plumbing the intake and exhaust through the wall so it could heat the shop, but doubt it'll happen. Yes Kenny, he has 2 or 3 of them(ferds). Yes we are going to get a correct nozzle, just used the...

    HEHE! 5/32 nozzle, we used half inch pipe for a nozzle on ours. Yeah, it would probably take 10 min. to blast your mower deck. Your deal is close to my deal, very little cost involved is a GOOD thing! That bigger comp. is probably about 30 cfm. When it comes to volume a single stage with...

    What type compressor? I don't think a piston type would work well. You want and electric or gas motor?

    Picked up a sand blaster

    So I did some searching, looks like the pot is a 2452 and it has MOST of the tlr300 remote control system. That is a trigger system to turn the supply on and off from the end of the blast hose. After I find a couple of pieces, that should work. Looks like there is a screen that sits on top of...

    Steve, I was kidding about the trailer, but yeah, you can use it when needed. Stretch, sounds good. 11 tall enough for the crane?

    A trailer you say?! I think someone was just talking about scrapping some 105s. Humm, who was that? Maybe we could mount it on one of those...

    Picked up a sand blaster

    FINALLY! I can reach the site. (I have been having problems connecting lately.) Yes, it came with a CPF 80 which can supply filtered(breathable) air to 4 users. The filter inside looks like it has never seen the light of day, untill today! I turned the housing upside down to get it out and it...

    I have been doing some reading, soda will work in this blaster. The guy said it would work better with an external aggitator, but it wasn't needed. I hope to be using this on my wrecker so I'll just stick with sand. After looking on-line, WOW these are expensive.

    Picked up a sand blaster

    Stretch and I have been talking about getting a "good" sand blasting system for our trucks for a LONG time. He has actually got a compressor on semi-permanat loan and found a cheap source for 1800lbs of black beauty. I told him since he got the other stuff, I would russel up an OK pressure pot...
