I use a squirrel cage blower, too. All shop vacs suck the air through the motor, and a certain amount of dust gets through the filtration, and into the bearings. The water trap, is a bucket, with an air hose inlet and outlet, on the top. Water inside, catches some of the dust, in the air. I think it might work on heavier particles, but the fine stuff, still comes out.

[quote="Scrivet[/quote] I would call such a device a Cub air cleaner. Some oil in the bottom, run the intake down the middle, some wire mesh packed in, exhaust out the side at the top. You could even use a mushroom cap over the intake in the cabinet. :D[/quote]
Great idea, I could paint the bucket red and put the sticker that talks about cleaning the filter every so many hours. :D

Surely having the air pass through and collect in the bag first, eliminates a good portion of the dust don't you think? I don't want to do anything permanent now because when the weather permits I'm having another garage/workshop built just for me and my Cub. :beer:

We bought a 4X8 sheet of Plexiglas and cut it to fit the light fixture. We had to change it every week because it got frosted. I think we got about 30 of them out of a 4x8 sheet.

I've extended my cabinet and installed a vacuum port at the end. I also installed this light http://www.homedepot.com/p/Designers-Ed ... /202765269

which works well.

My blaster is taller than most, so the plexiglass is somewhat protected from the grit.

Eliminates most of it, but it doesn't take a lot, to mess up a bearing. This is why I preach not to sandblast any part with bearings or seals. YOU CAN"T STOP IT ALL !!!!

You guy's could try one of these [url]http://www.oneida-air.com/category.asp?Id={CC6B6F2A-E3D7-4F18-A53C-B5C357DFE131}[/url] it might work. I at one time tried the water method sanding drywall but must have done it wrong because the top of the water would become dust covered and then the dust would just go into the shop vac. I now have had my TP Tools cabinet for 20 years,alot of sand has gone thru it. I have used every media except plastic and walnut hulls I also have their vac system and a media recycler on it now. There still are times that it's hard to see into the cabinet no matter what.
