I have a little cheapo syphon feed sand blaster, and I was never very impressed with it. Are those pressure fed blasters that much better, and will my 5hp/30gal crapsman huffer handle it? And how much blasting time does one get out of a twenty lb capacity blaster, or should I go ahead and get a larger one?
Harbor freight has some good deals on them.

There is no comparison on the difference between the two, the pressure tanks are SOOO much better. Your compressor won't keep up tho. Unless you have the smallest nozzle and then it takes forever. I have a 10 hp commercial and it has a hard time keeping up with a blaster, tho it is a bit bigger than the Harbor freight jobs.

Thanks Bob, I've done most of my stripping with stripper wheels on my die grinder, but there's still a lot of places I just can't get to with that. And I'm trying real hard not to have to remove my doors since they fit so good right where they're at, but I really want to get at those door jambs.
Does silica sand cut better than plain old river sand? I can get tons of that for free. Or is it worth it to buy silica?
