Any recommendations for a sand blast cabinet? Brand, size, options, etc.

I do not care what she tells you, Size does matter.

I have a blasting cabinet I bought At Harbour Freight. It was the largest one they had and it works fine. I use what's called "sugar sand" . I believe it's no.9.

With any sand or blasting cabinet or operation the key is having a good air compressor. I have an Ingersoll rand 5 hp with a 60 gal. tank.

Some people like to use glass beads or walnut shells but the finest sand I can get seems to work for me.

For the occasional user the HF model is fine. It depends how much you want to spend when it's all said and done.

This one has served me well for the last 30 years or so. Only t parts I can't get in it are driveshaft tubes, frames, and radius rods.

Get one as big as possible, a two-stage compressor to match, lotsa interior light, the best ventilation system available, and STILL wear a mask!

And some way to separate the water out of the air coming out of the compressor. :-)

A pressure-fed Empire with a baghouse. Difficult to find a good one used, but well worth the effort. 48" x 48" x 36" is about the minimum for doing Model T fenders. As others have said, bigger is better.

As others have said, you need LOTS of air, LOTS.
If you can run the air thru a couple of receivers before it gets to your supply hose, it is less likely you will get water vapour coming thru, otherwise a refrigerated drier is really needed (commercial or home made). You need good vacuum extraction to keep cabinet clear and unless you are rural, you need to filter the outflow. IF USING SAND, THAT DUST IS A KILLER ! (literally-carcenajenic)
You probably need a cyclone seperator as the dust will KILL your extractor {Been there, Done that $$$$}
Domestic electricity supply will limit you to about 15CFM Comp unless you go to engine powered compresser and neighbours will soon complain.

My sand blast cabinet is a big card board box, it saves the sand and I do it outside so the wind takes care of the dust. poor people have poor ways.

I just sold my 48 x 36 commercial grade with vacuum system last week on Facebook garage sales for 300 When I just look at our area they were at least 5 cabinets for sale from 200 -500 $$

I agree with Dale. Wear a mask whether your using a cabinet or sandblasting on the outside!

You will never be able to cough up the fine dust you thought wasn't there!

Make sure that you install a good water separator before the cabinet. I live in humid Florida so an air dryer is almost essential but if you cant afford one then at least use a double separator one before your regulator and one after.

Thanks for all the good advice.
