Portable Media Blaster Tip
I have recieved many good tips and information from this site, I thought I would share something with everyone. I hope it helps someone.

I recently purchased a portable media blaster from HF. It worked for a while and then just quit working. I was thinking of how I could finish my job, and I thought about a 3M body shutz under coating gun I have. I dug it out and gave it a try, and it worked great. The only problem is the 3M gun is designed to fit a certain size can. I don't know how long the 3M gun will hold up, but it works great.

Never would have thought of that!

Interesting. I have one of those guns too. Cool tip.

another thing to consider is containment. Been thinking about getting a huge 55 gallon storage box and putting plexiglass on it with holes for some long rubber gloves. To me, it's just as important as having the gun itself. It's great other than using it without some sort of way of containing it.

Portable Sandblaster
The storage box would be great to use as a cabinet. That is a good idea, thanks.

h/f blaster
was that the small table top blaster ??? did u take the gun apart to see why it stoped working. maybe a small mod on the gun would solve the problem??? i've been thinking of the table top or next one up with legs.. not a ton of use but nice to have if u need it.

It was the hand held type with the screw on canister. I didnt take it apart.
