Ed's been busy building this sandblaster cabinet. My job is to post the pictures. Ed will tell you about it.

Thanks, Bob! The bottom photo shows the left side funnel section in place. I'm working on the right side one, then will install a clean out door on the bottom. The unit will have pipe legs, attached where the original tank legs mounted, about 2 feet long, with castors. The door will be framed with angle iron, for rigidity, and to provide gasketing surface. Lighting is in the planning stage. A mesh floor will be installed. The working area will be 26 inches wide, 5 feet long, and about 3 feet high. Should fit most of the parts I need to clean, especially implements. Ed

Base won't fit, without Bill's help :) . Other parts will probably fit. Ed

That's going to be a heck of a blast cabinet! It's also a great use for an old heating oil tank. Around here, you can't give those things away.

I just have one question. With it being so tall, where is the stool Ed will have to stand on so that he can see inside and what he is blasting?
