sand blasters

I have a good sand blaster cabinet with the vacumm system and wonder if the window really needs the plastic protectors. Do any of you use these plastic window protectors that are for the inside of the bast cabinet? i have alway used them but they get dirty quickly.

Re: sand blasters

We have the plastic protectors on the blast cabinet at work and they do get dirty fast. I will clean it off with a damp paper towel when it gets too bad. If you don't use them, the blast media will be bouncing into the glass and etching it making it impossible to see through at some point. I haven't bought either and don't know which is cheaper to replace?

Re: sand blasters

What size/type cabinets are you guys using?
Have been thinking about getting one.
Compressor suggestions appreciated as well.

Re: sand blasters

Harbor Freight stand-up cabinet.  Assembled with LOTS of silicone sealant.  Seems to work fine with 5hp compressor.  I burned up a shop vac the first time I used it.

For my limited usage, it should work fine. 

I have it in the new shop so I can position it in a 10’x8’ overhead door with a large fan behind me to blow all the dust outside.

Money you enjoy wasting is NOT wasted money... unless your wife finds out.
