I do the same. Sift thru an old window screen, Tarp is an old outdoor advertising sign. They paint the billboard ads on a piece of poly tarp then hang it on the large hiway side advertising signs. I get the old ones for free from the outdoor advertising guy..
When I lived in northern Michigan. I had 120 acres of white sand. But the stuff wasn't sharp edged and did a terrible job. Just turned to powder..

|Ironpony||Oh I almost forgot don't put one of these next to the beer fridge in your shop. Mass confusion may result, But I do put a lock on the outside so it doesn't get opened a lot. And mark on the outside what's in there Just in case say law enforcement busts your door down. But thats a whole differnt story. Thanks Bill|

|Ironpony||I have a old fridge I got for nothing years ago. I got it to use to keep welding rod dry. I put 25 watt shop light in there for heat. Here in Oklahoma it is very humid all the time. So I keep welding rod powder coating powder and blast media in it. Then every time I get something that has deccisant packs in it. (The little white packs that say "don't eat this" that are packed with just about everything any more) I change them out every now and then just throw them on the top shelf. It will dry out a 5 gal bucket of wet sand after a long enough time so I know it will work well. And I got zip into it. Thanks Bill|

sandblaster media dry??
what is the best way to keep the sand that you'd use dry for use..
I have one of these (not the exact one, mines and eastwood model a tad bigger)
bagged sand tends to be damp.. like to store sand onsite so when I need it I'm not off to the store, but don't want to store it and it be damp and clog up the works..
