That is great.
I have a smaller one but always thought it would be useful to have a large one like yours.

I like it! But using the pot & having to refill is time consuming, plus if there is any moisture, you'll run into media blocking up. My cabinet uses siphon feed right from the bottom of the funneled floor & never gives any problems whatsoever. If you have feeding problems, I suggest going to siphon feed. You'll have to buy a siphon style gun, but the pickup siphon tube you can make yourself. You did a knock-out job building that cabinet!
What are you doing for dust filtering?

For now I have exhaust fans coming out of the cabinet right next to an exhaust fan that goes outside and I wear a respirator, but it's less than perfect. I saw your posts on the wet dust filter system and I've got my lines out looking for the stuff to build one. Fantastic idea by the way! I have 2 siphon feed setups and I thought that they were a little on the slow side. Of course you're right about the refill taking a lot of time too. Wouldn't be too hard to block the funnel at the bottom as it is just the top off of a bottle of Lucas.

I'm working on an air dryer too. I have an old propane cylinder that I intend to wrap the coolant lines from a dehumidifier around and swirl the incoming air around the sides with the discharge at the top, in the original valve location, and a drain at the bottom. It can be dangerous to weld on things like that, but I'll flood the tank with argon before I weld.

I've seen it up close, & it's fantastic. Caseguy doesn't usually build things 1/2 way. He left out 1 important fact tho... the weight.
