Blasting Cabinet suggestions

I think I'm at a point where I could use a blasting cabinet for my garage,or as my wife calls it, the man fort. I'm looking for some suggestions on what you guys like or may have. My compressor is rated at 16 scfm@175psi. It would be nice to buy something once instead of cheaping out and then buying what you really need in a few years. Of course I am on a budget. Thanks!

About 17 years ago I bought a Scat-Blast model 930. I used my tax refund money to pay for it. It has a foot control for the air, a vacuum to suck out the dust, and has a light. Also it is big enough to put a 16" truck wheel in and move it around to get all of it. I have absolutely no regrets on buying it. It has served me well. I don't remember the cfm it uses. I have the regulator set at 85 psi and while blasting the compressor will start , pump up and shut off. My comp is a 7.5 hp 30 cfm so I don't know how your comp would do.

Somewhere in HotRodders land I posted on how to build a nice one. I don't have time to look at the moment but I'll see if I can find it later.

Some home made cabinet ideas:

Or blasting cabinet at work has protective clear I believe vinal sheets to protect the glass or it becomes etched something to consider if building your own.
Haven't done much sandblasting except heavy items,have read can cause warpage on lighter materrial items hth

Thanks for the feedback. After looking at those sites I might try to build my own. While surfing the net I found an interesting cabinet, take a look at www.barrelblaster.com
