Homemade media cabinet

Hey, anyone ever ventured to the dark side and made their own media blast cabinet? I realized recently how very much easier one would make my life (rather than using sandpaper and scotch-brites lol) im thinking of makin one from 2X4s and plywood or OSB... thaughts or opinions? Thanks guys.

blast cabinet

I made mine about 25 year ago from free main frame computer cabinet panels . the computer box was about the size of a washing machine I made mine long enough so a rear end would fit inside. door on the end. I used free tempered glass for the top window, tacked it together using bed frame angle iron and calked the seams. It still works ok. you can order the replacement long gloves and build to suit. do it cheap and pick up a couple of old washer dryer cabinets and have half of it done.

I buy parts for my cabinet from this outfit. I'd recommend them to look at.

Did the same a few weeks ago. It cost me about $150 in parts and a pressure pot.
Works great and will continue to tweak it to make it easier to use.

no pressure pot ?

If you buy a siphon bucket instead of a pressure pot it will work better if you keep the bucket of sand up high so the siphon gun does not have to lift the sand.
