You can drive a nail with a rock but would you use one to build a house? The impact probably will work decent because of the low CFM rating and the fact that it it will run only intermittently but a sandblaster is an air hog even with the smallest nozzles and it will not work very well even though it may "work" in a sense. A 10-12 CFM tool just will not work right on a 6 CFM compressor no matter what so it is far better to spend a bit more and get the proper set-up than to waste what he does spend on something that is plainly not up to the job and probably will wear out in short order along with being a PIA to use.
