Dust Collector For Blast Cabinet

I just aquired a 36" sandblast cabinet.
I am wondering about a dust collector.
I found this unit advertised locally. Anyone use something like this for a sandblast cabinet?

That unit will work and you will probably find other uses for it

Thanks.

I found an owners manual that says for sawdust only but I think they just don't want people sucking up water or something with it.

dust collector.....

HI,dont re-invent the wheel,cut a hole in the side ,top,for a hose from your shop vac,cut another hole on opposite side,near the bottom,for an air inlet. works great. (of course,turn on the shop vac,when using cabinet)

Shop vac would be good but the boys in the shop would be taking it elsewhere if its not padlocked and chained up.

I'm sure they won't take the dust collector to start cleaning up with.

tractor air inake ?

I have been thinking about using a dirt separator first before the shop vac. Shop vas paper elements clog up fast. they are not sized for the small particles to protect you from dust hazzards, My big sand blast cabinet is out side under a cover and I run a long pvc pipe before hooking up to a shop vac. The farm tractors have a clear plastic pre collector that swirls the air to get the big stuff to settle, in a dusty field they fill up fast. , they can be easily cleaned, first just dump out the dirt. The intake air then goes into the second filter. air filter changes are about $60
