How long ago did you bild this?
How thick is the ply?
Is the ply going to hold up to the abuse of the media used to blast the project?
Do you sift the used media to reuse it?

The reason I ask is that I just bought a 50# portable blast kit from HF and this could be a viable solution. I’m curious, as to how well your cabinet performs in the long run.

Looks like good use of scrap material. Even if it only last a short time (compared to a “Full Metal Jacket”) it is easy/cheap enough to repair or rebuild.

i taked 2 week-end to bild the project
ply is a 3/4 inchs
i used many differents type of scrap wood like ply,pine,melamine.and the top is a sheet of coroplast so i don’t need to instal the light in the box cause the light come from the top of my shop
i think the ply will be ok for long time using but if don’t i coul’d install a sheet of 18 gauge metal on the ply
yes ,i sift the media when it need to do and the blaster is a syphon type
the gun is a dual action with a recepe on top but i removed it cause i don’t need in the cabinet
it cost me about 200 $ compared to a Full Metal Jacket cost around 2 or 3000$ for this space
60×21x36 inchs
and it’s gone do the job nicely

-- yes i do

great blasting cabinet :-)
if you cover the sides /bottom and top with 5mm rubber mats
then you wont have to be carefull
if you cover the window in side with the thinplasticksheets thing you can buy in paper/bookstore
that on one side has the same glue on like the yellow notesblock
your window will last forever if you change the cover from time to time

somewhere I have read there cuold be an advance to add a purple light inside
so it wuold be easyer to look thrugh the dust

thanks for sharing
Dennis
