Those are not all that hard to make..Lots are built in a "home made fashion" to accomodate the needs of a particular shop..just a basic box large enough to fit the parts..the gloves are available as replacement items from several supppliers and a good glass window..

Look at one sometime and you can derive all the info you need..

Just a big box with a window and the glove pieces placed in convenient positions for the user..plywood works fine tho I like to use either MDO or HDO coated plywood for those..

Be sure to check out the Hotrodders Knowledge Base. There are a couple of articles on this in the Garage - Tools category. Here's a link:

i have plans for a simple cabinet that uses one sheet of plywood and a 5 gallon bucket

fill up the bucket, insert the siphon tube, blast, and then when done just shovel everything back into the bucket

i can also change the plans up so that it has a hopper on the bottom, but it would require a second sheet of plywood, and the plans were originaly drawn up for someone who had a single extra shet of plywood to use for the project

lemm dig out the plans and get back to ya ..

TP Tools and Equipment makes and sells kits to build your own cabinet plus carry guns, foot pedels, plastic sheets and gloves.
For the glass find a good glass shop in your area and get a piece of tempered glass (you will want to buy the plastic sheeting to go over the glass to keep from frosting it up). I bought a piece of 18"x24"x1/4" for 25 bucks here.

I built this one using a 55 gal drum, some "l" angle steel, 3/4 plywood and some parts from harborfreight. I got rough plans if you want them. Let me know!

Go to this link for a few more pictures of szingheim's home built unit. http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/newb...ew-118463.html And note the great solution for when the sand/media bridges in the bucket - an inexpensive sander strapped to the side.

Here's mine. It's not as nice as Szingsheim's. I love the design because I can rotate it to adjust for my height. (sitting or standing) The siphon system is very slow. I plan to build a pressure pot as soon as I get a welder. I'll probably weld in some new arm holes as well. The flanges I used are a tad small for my arms.

I am a woodworker and welder. I am interested in your rough plans for the blast cabinet.
