I paid $530 including tax last summer (at Steve's's like a Harbor Freight). This comp is more than enough for what I do, it never runs out of air when I'm using my die grinders, DA's, or cut off wheels.

Other dude is right though, sandblasting does take a whole lot of air. Sorry I can't give you feed back on if mine holds up to that. You may need alot more than 135 max psi.
I have this exact same compressor. It's been great for the 6-8 years I've owned it, but marginal volume for bigger sand blast jobs. I use mine with a small/medium size cabinet blaster once in a wile, but sometimes have to wait for it to catch up. for just blasting small parts it's fine however. works fine for painting also.
good bang for the buck IMO.
