Sand Blaster

Just wondering what a good brand sandblaster is. I used a friends that came from Harbor freight, or either northern one time and it didn't work very well. Just wondering what everone else uses that sandblasts a lot.
Let me know.. Thanks

Several years ago I bought a siphon type sandblaster, not sure the brand...Ingersoll maybe? But anyway, in addition to dry air as mentioned the previous post, but DRY SAND is required. You can probably get away with an inexpensive sandblaster if keep moisture out it. I know this from experience... very frustrating!

i bought a small potable craftsman sandblaster for $40, havent had any problems yet, it doesnt hold very much (but it is the portable one). they have a lot of different ones to choose from ( i think the highest priced one was like $150 ) and nobody can beat the craftsman name.

sorry -portable-

Hey that first sandblaster looked nice.. It might be my air, I'll have to check on that, I tried to shoot wet sand one time by accident with a portable one I do have and of course that didn't work too well. So i found that out first hand also haha.
I'll have to check out the craftsman ones I didn't notice them in the store which is probably why i never checked.
Anyone else have any opinions/suggestions?
Thanks for the info guys

yeah id check your air compressor because every once in a while mine starts to look a little wet too. that and when im usin my Dual action sander (craftsman of course), that little hole where the air escapes, little bits of water start to come out. anybody got any ideas??? it happens every so often, could it be that the air gets so cold that the water im seeing is precipitation???

thanks,
classic

I have had bits of ICE, yes ICE, spitting out of my air board sander. Doesnt work worth a sh**, trying to run air tools on water (or ice). Need an inline air/water seperator or dryer! Especially if you paint. Draining the tank helps but dont cure the problem.
