Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Bought a new sandblaster ...now need to know hoe to use it properly
First off, Id like to personally recommend LOTS OF AIR, both in aspects of PRESSURE and VOLUME. Sandblasting requires roughly 90 PSI, but lots of continuous CFM (cubic feet per minute).
If the proper air compressor is not affordable, one solution would be to use the sand blaster until the compressor turns on to replenish the air supply. When this happens, simply wait for the compressor to turn back off and allow a short cool down time (roughly 3-5 minutes). Over running an air compressor will shorten the life span of your compressor, or the electric motor that runs it.
After you ensure that your sandblaster has enough air delivery, you should invest in something that will remove the moisture from the air lines. A water trap right at the tank will do little, however if you place it closer to the blaster, you will net better results. The air from the compressor is HOT or WARM, and the moisture contained therein is still in gaseous form. After the air has had a chance to cool down, the moisture can condense and form water droplets, which will inevitably clog your gun. This is not a permanent problem, but a very annoying one at that. These key points will allow you many years of parts restoration, rust removal, and overall greater productivity. Good luck with your endeavours.
Most importantly, ENJOY!

Make sure first of all you have a big enough compresor to run ur sand blaster always put clean sand in it,try using a screen if u have to reuse sand if big enough chunks get in the sand it will clog up.hold away from object to be sanded about 3 inches away from area to be sanded.always keep blaster moving if u keep it in 1 spot to long u can warp the metal.other then that i dont know specifically what u need to know.
