I got one of those sandblasted that hooks to a pressure washer. Has anybody have one and have any tips on how to use it? It looks simple enough but it doesn't want to suck the sand. I've watched you tube videos and got on another forum but all I really got was that the hose for the sand needs to come in the nozzle from the top. I also got that they are problematic.
You need really DRY sand/media
never heard of that.
Works great. There was a steep learning curve, though. Keep the sand dry and elevated. Keep the sand inlet on the nozzle on top and keep the nozzle down so water doesn't run back into the sand hose. If it plugs up, you have to stop and clean out the clog. After a couple of tries I got the hang of it and was impressed with how well it worked. I'm going to do a frame next.
DO NOT use it anywhere near a door or any kind of opening to your shop, garage, or home. Those sand particles can find the smallest of openings and you'll be sweeping for a while.
The blaster itself works good. No complaints. Use fine sand that is packaged for blasting. Can be purchased at about any tombstone monument company. Don't be tempted to use bulk masonry sand or you probably won't like the blaster due to clogs.
Bill ! With the water there is no dust.
I'll try it again with the sand elevated. I have black diamond sand and regular sand box sand. It works great when it gets sand but it doesn't want to suck it up.
I'm not sure were you would get this in Texas
