When done we have a plastic 55 gallon barrell and I made a quick wooden frame with screen wire for a filter(cheap from lowes, just regular window/door screen). Just pour from the tarp to a bucket and from the bucket through the screen into the barrell. It works well for the big blaster, IDK if it would filter small enough for the tip on the spot blaster or not. We have one of the spot blasters, but havent used it much lately because everything has been all over type work. I do like it on smaller repairs it is great for tight spots or small chips that have rusted when the whole panel doesnt need blasting.
sounds great. Thanks for that.
