I'm just thinking if you start doing big stuff in there (you mentioned your frame) it might get a bit wobbly... and if that thing came down while you were running it, it would get really messy!

I see what you're saying, but I'd be comfortable putting 300 lbs in it the way it is.

Looks good man. I've been kicking around doing a benchtop model at work from steel. Can you post up the ebay links for the gun and stuff?

Oh, OK. I just figured since you said it was getting heavy, so you put wheels on it.

Just a thought... Old grill + Dremel + plexiglass = cheaper blasting cabinet

When I was preparing to do this I saw pics of people's media blasters made out of all sorts of stuff. Steel 55gal drums was a common one. I did mine the way I did because I needed it to be a specific size and be able to move it around easily.

It would be kind of small, though.

+1, in a grill you'd barely have room to move both hands around and work. I could easily fit headers, car wheels, etc in mine. My frame will fit actually, I'm just not sure if I'll have the mobility to hit it very well.

I'll have to keep this in mind. So the wood does hold up well? I would think at 100psi it would start deteriorating overtime from constant over spray.
