  • Sand blaster
  • Bought myself a blasting cabinet from harbor freight and am having trouble getting it to work... I've never owned a sand blaster before, so I didn't really know what to expect. Seems as if too little material is coming thru the tube- switched to a larger nozzle, but that didn't help. Running it at 100psi, medium grit 1/4" nozzle.

  • It takes a lot of air to run a 1/4" nozzle. Is your compressor large enough to keep up?

    Moisture in the compressed air or ambient air can also clog things up.

  • try dropping it to 90psi. Is the media nice and dry?
