About 3 casual afternoons/evenings. I designed it as I went, so sometimes I grabbed something from the store and spent 10min on it on a few occasions.



On media, i have some glass bead media, but it wore out fairly quickly. I'm going to switch to some similar grit alum oxide media.

That black glass stuff is WAY too much for anything other than blasting serious shit off of cast iron or something.

How would it be a waste of time to use a pancake compressor? they still pump 100 psi, the one I have holds pretty solid pressure over the duration of use too. is there an ideal number for blasting parts?

Got a question about modifying your Z1000? send me a message, I can probably help.

it wouldn't be able to keep up with the air flow requirements.

sure you could use it but you'd only be doing spots at a time while you wait for the pressure to build up again.

remember PSI is pressure, not amount of air being used or flowed. 100 psi of pressure in a film canister has way less work potential than 100 psi of pressure in a 100 gallon tank.

CFM = Cubic Feet per Minute. This is really the most important # to look for when you're shopping for a compressor. I have a 33gal unit but it can't keep up with my HVLP paint guns, nevermind a sandblaster.

That's why I'm upgrading to a 60gal unit!

Word of advice, if you're gonna switch up your media, grab a couple big rubbermaid containers fro mthe dollar store, and build your cab high enough so you can slide one under the funnel - this way you can reclaim/reuse & keep your media DRY between uses.

ya, I dont have any drain in mine yet, it's just a trough in the bottom. When I change media, I plan to cut a decent size whole in the bottom and install a big ass PVC fitting with a threaded cap, can't remember what it's called......cleanout port or something.....
