What kind of pressure did you use for this? Also how much cfm does your compressor put out??

I just bought a blaster but i'm looking to find a minimum requirement for a compressor... they say I need 10 cfm at 90....

Some siphon guns don't require a lot of CFM. I think the Harbor Freight one only requires 4cfm @ around 50psi minimum or something like that. I have it and it's not bad. It's not as good at the Craftsman one I used to have, but for the price it's ok for if you're going to be doing occasional sandblasting. Here it is:

I finally broke down and decided to upgrade to a new sand blasting cabinet, homebrew of course... Here is what I was rockin with before on the cheap:


That cost about $60 total including the gun and 50lb of crushed glass media. Then another $80 and 10hrs later gave me this:







Though I did already have some of the parts like the racks, shop light, old vacuum, and such. Now I just need to build a better paint/powder booth and I'll be set. Oh, and build a bigger powder baking oven. Damn, so much to do lol Ok picture time is over..... time to go DW!!

yep, very similar to mine, but mine was bigger, had a top door and could fit my zx6r frame.
