My buddy has one that doesn't have leg's. I'm not sure where he got his, knowing him some garage sale or flea market, but I do know HF sells one with out legs. When I made mine I made it a bit to short so I ended up putting a little platform under it.

Looks good and I think you will enjoy it.

You are probably better off building your own legs. Most of the stuff they sell is too light in my opinion anyway.

Good Lookin Cabinet. :thumbs:

What Brand & size is it?
It's a Black Bull. Chinese. Not to bad for the money.

The inside is 21x22x 34

A friend of mine has a similar one. I reinforced his legs with bed frame angle iron. It worked super. I will do the same with this one.

Just was looking at a blaster cabinet today on Craigslist. Looks great. I've seen where guys incorporate a lift mechanism under a platform so the height can be adjustable. Enjoy.

A sand blast cabinet is still on my short list of tools to buy. Good looking cabinet and I am sure it will come in handy.

Stick it on top of one of the dozen or so super cheap tractors ya got laying around there. 'Portable'!

Ooh, ooh! Then use an attachment pulley to run the compressor!

Remember, we're all in this together. I'm pullin' for ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is one heck of an idea. I could make the 318 a compressor tractor. I have an 1935 Gardner compressor head I could rebuild. Now I won't be able to sleep tonight. :rolling:

Nice looking piece of equipment you have. :thumbs:

We have plastic media blasters and baking soda blasters at work. They are all set up with some type of lift system to make the working height comfortable for everyone (short or tall) that uses the blaster.

Some of the blasters are made with an air bag type of lift...pretty neat.

Well, the legs showed up yesterday and I put it together. I added a filter and a pressure regulator. I sure do like it.

I am using black beauty media right now. I am going to switch to sand.

What do you guys use.

Looks good all set up, I really need to get one of those. Glad the legs came in, saved you some work before you could use it.
Because of the wait and aggravation for the legs, to make a long story short, Amazon refunded $160. :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
