I'd like to hear some feedback on what you guys might be using, how much it was, how much is it to maintain and so on.
The more the feedback the better.

First - I'd probably check Craigslist locally for a used commercial setup, sometimes you can get lucky and find a decent used setup.

I bought a Huge used Snap-On one from a friend of mine and the gloves were shot...Snap-On wanted 95.00 + shipping.

I found these guys and now buy all my blasting parts from them...

If I had to do it again - I'd buy 1 of their kits and build my own!
