I just found this 20 gallon blaster on ebay.
Only $120
It is a pressure blaster, and uses a deadman valve instead of the ballc-o-c-k valve.
Harbor Freight has the same thing for $200, which is actually more than this one.
Ofcourse you'll have to pay for shipping, but if you live near the store, you can pick it up and save on shipping. I'm thinking real hard about getting this one.

Sorry to rehash an older thread... but does anyone have experience with the 125 lb Maxus?



Got a pretty good deal on eBay but I still would like some feedback or a review. Thanks.

I don't have any experience with it, but it's obviously the same as the red one above.

Sandblaster recommendations

I've got both a pressure pot blaster and a bead blasting cabinet from these folks. Both are very rugged units and are manufactured in the U.S.A. I've restored several cars utilizing them and have not had any problems. My experience with the imported units is that you are better off throwing your money out the window.

blaster wet blast !!

I have a 5 hp compressor and it won.t keep up with my bucket sears blaster. I have a booth big enough for a rear end with vacuum attachment. A contractor friend had a trailer mounted air compressor and said i could borrow it . diesel costs $ 3.50 per gal and he goes thru a lot. I bought a wet blaster from Northern tool. I have a 3500 pressure washer and it will take rust off 3 times faster than the air powered one...sand doesn't bounce back as bad with the air set up.. I used it outside and it goes thru a lot of sand. I am going to buy a pickup load until I can go to the dunes with a big trailer. It scatters sand everywhere but my closest neighbor is 1/4mile away. If you are in town sand would probably end up in your neighbor's yard too

Hi, thanks a lot for the feedback. I've been reading more on it. It seems that to avoid headaches; my best bet is to fix my eBay Arrow refrigerated air dryer and install before using sandblaster.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll have to build an enclosure (plywood, MDF or galvanized sheet) lined with 6ml plastic sheet as a temp booth first.

harbor freight verses eastwood

Ive always bragged on eastwood. Had a HB pressureized sand blaster. TOSSED IT. Bought Eastwood on line. Guess WHAT. Exactly the Same == just different color and over double the price. STILL JUNK!!! Hope you shop more wisely than I did. EASTWOOD, Im disappointed

For your first post you replied to a 6-1/2 years old thread... that's gotta be a record ...

In any event, Welcome to Hotrodders
