I've been reading your post and deadman is right about the size of the compressor,I'm speaking from experance.When I started my project I had a 60 gal 3.5hp 10cfm Ingersoll Rand and a harbor freight blaster.When I would blast something it took forevery so one day when I had alot of blasting to do I rented one of the industrial pull around compressors and what a differance it made.It takes high CFM compressor to run a sand blaster.I now have a Quincy 80 gal 2 stage Compressor I beleive its around 18 CFM which is still not enough but it's ok.To run the blaster you really need something around 24 cfms but then you need to make sure your electrical wiring is large enough.After I purchased the compressor I borrowed a larger blaster it was a texas blaster which is great but you still need CFMS.
Hope this helps
