Just purchased a sandblasting outfit
Hello, I just purchased a sandblasting outfit today. It is a XAS90 185CFM 4cyl John Deere diesel pull behind with 3000 hours on it. The Blasting pot is a Clemco 1042 100# pot with all of the hoses, dead man switch, the Pot has a new plunger. It also came with a Clemco fresh air hood filter. It all runs like a top, the only problem I have is that I have never sand blasted before in my life. I always wanted to get into this and I now have take some big steps. I know its not the most productive set up, but it was affordable for. The guy I purchased it from only shot silica sand through it. I was just wanting to know what other media can be shot through it and where is the best place to buy it? I am in Indiana and I am now the only one in my City that has a portable sandblasting set up but do not know how to use it. Any suggestions would be helpful. I was just searching the web and ran across you site. My full time job is being a County Police officer. I am wanting to make some extra money with this unit. I feel I got a good deal at $2500.00 for all of it, and it runs great.
