My Foldable Sandblast Cabinet Invention

Hi
My name is Shane Tan from Sydney Australia.

I have invented something that may be of interest to this group.

I have invented a Sandblasting Cabinet that is Foldable. This has the advantages of being easily stored or transported. It will fold in less than a minute and will easily fit in the trunk of a car. It also has a very large working volume (38"x24"x26") for those larger parts you may want to blast.
In Australia we have a TV program 'The New Inventors' and my invention was featured last year. You can view parts of the show if you go to their website and click on the watch video link at www.abc.net.au/newinventors/txt/s1345085.htm or off my site www.stanblast.com . This video has the final shot of me driving off in my early Porsche with the cabinet stuck on the back seat.

I am not selling in the US yet but am posting it now to see if there is any overseas interest with a view to doing this in the future.

I have tried to attach pictures via the attach files option but they do not show up in the preview post so if they do not show could someone tell me how to do this.

That's actually really neat. I can think of many times I needed a blast cabinet, and don't have the space to have one sitting around. A collapsible one would fit my shop perfectly, you couls store it collapsed, and set it up whenever you needed it. Cool.


This may be close to the advertising limit, however. You may have to remove your site link. I hope it doesn't get dumped, as this is an interesting idea.

Aussies are so ingenious. Cool idea. How does the material (pvc I'm guessing) hold up over time dragging metal objects with sharp edges in and out of it?

I agree that is a great idea, I would really like to have one. Probably is breaking the advertising rules a bit but It sure is a neat idea.

Hopefully I don't get it removed, I did go through the previous posts and found lots of sandblasting questions and do really think my invention is interesting to this group.

The material is a very tough fabric reinforced PVC that is up to the job. If it ever gets damaged it can easily be repaired as you would a tyre puncture. The prototypes seen in the video were glued using PVC glue that actually 'welds' the joints by melting them together so repairs can be restored to full strength.
