Ok I feel like some kind of troll replying to my own thread, but I have found out a couple of things and thought I would add to it. The air jet is usually 1/2 the size of the media nozzle. If you have a gun with a .094" air jet it will take a .188" media nozzle. The air jet in a cheap gun is located behind the suction port. I have a gun that has a tapered tube that puts the air jet opening forward of the suction port. That one has a .200" air jet so I would surmise that it should have a .400" media nozzle. The solid carbide nozzle that was in it was worn out to over 1/2 ". I wonder what you should be blasting with that one. I still would like to know what are the proper air pressures and which type of media works best with the various size orifices. Thanks for reading this.
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
