I really need to build one of these since I'm getting my blasting setup all hooked up.

Stupid question, but I have to ask because I don't know...

Are you guys using a tank like this to put your blasting media in?

If not then what the hell are you putting it in?

The blast cabinets in this thread use a siphon tube to suck the media from the bottom of the cabinet. That's why they have pyramid shaped bottoms.

I know the picture is small but you can see the differences here.

exactly what geek said.

You don't use a tank like that unless it's like a walk in blasting room. most all cabinets feed from the bottom of the cabinet.

Question Re: DIY, Homemade Media Blasting Cabinet

I was thinking about building a cabinet out of metal until I saw yours!! Excellent piece of work. So I kind of made one similar to yours. It is all good except for the siphon. It does not work very well even at 100psi. I have the same gun, hose and pickup tube like yours and mounted in a like place. It seems to pack up with the black silica I am using.

Hope some one here can help me with this problem.

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!

On mine I Actually cut the end of the pickup tube off at a steep angle and faced it up so the media would fall into it better. I also did this mod to the gun:
