I got wood today, and built myself a little stand! I got all the wood cut at Home Depot and that made it much easier, it went together very fast! The stand is very strong and has no movement.
It came with two extra protective sheets for the window, I taped them to the back of the cabinet for safe keeping.
To mount the regulator I went with a simple solution. I cut an allen key at the bend, drilled a hole in the stand and hammered the allen key into the hole. Then, the regulator sits on top of the key and the key goes into the plug for the extra hole in the regulator. The allen key goes into the plug pretty far and actually holds it very sturdy! The regulator lifts right off to hook the hose to it, then stick it back on there and blast away!
Now, to explain the plumbing better! The air supply hooks to the front of the regulator, and the hose on the back is connected with a barb fitting and some clamps.
The hose that comes out of the back of the regulator goes around to the back of the cabinet and inside.
The hose goes inside and hooks to a barb fitting on the gun. So, all you have to do is hook the air hose to the front of the regulator and it is ready to go!
I have not used it, although it is ready to go once I put sand in it. I don't want to put sand in it until I get it into it's "spot" because I don't want to move it with all the sand in it.
I have less then $140 into it so far for everything, the cabinet, the wood, the box of nails, sand, and some small hardware.
I am going to cut a piece of plywood to fit on top of the pieces between the legs for an extra self.
