My Sandblaster Exhaust Vent
Posted October 27, 2012 - 07:06 PM
I used the blower from my brothers last demolition car for the actual fan. I cut a big hole into the lid and screwed the blower to the lid.
A couple weeks ago I got some PVC parts, the other day I cut and painted them.
Today, I got back to it some and made the frame that will hold the bucket up.
There is not much left, I have to attach one more pipe, then paint the bucket and that pipe.

Matt, at first I had a hose going outside from the vent, but everything got dusty because the hose was short. After that, I just closed off the vents. Lol!
I could not help it, I went out and did a little more. I got the pipe fitted to the side of the bucket. I cut the side off of one end of the pipe, then cut an odd shaped hole in the bucket.
The pipe is a little wider then the hole, and it slides into two little slots I made.
Now I just need to paint, and seal all of the seams up!

Oh.... didn't you know your supposed to get in the cabinet with the parts while you blast them
Very nice idea Ryan! I know what you mean about dusty, as I've been using my cabinet alot, so everything in my shop is coated. Not to mention it gets so dusty in the cabenet you can barley see what your blasting!
*Disclaimed: This is only a joke and you should never get into a blast cabinet while sandblasting parts

For use, a 20ft dryer vent hose clamped onto a piece of PVC that is put onto the part sticking off the side of the bucket.
For power, I have two wires coming from the blower, through a drilled hole in the stand and then attached to their own bolt.
On the other side the bolts each have two nuts, and a colored washer (I think the colored washer is pretty self-explanatory). A 10 amp battery charger is then hooked to the bolts and powers the blower.
