That should get you started with some good proper info, Although I still use sand some when reclaiming and reuseing ain't practical(you can get 9-12 uses out of a $20 bag of coal slag, or 20-30 uses from a $60 bag of glass bead, and 1-2 from a $4 bag of sand). The modern medias work better and if you can contain and reuse are cheaper and safer than sand, most of the media used for blasting don't have the silicosis hazard. You'll still want to use a resperator or inline air anyways though(not a dust mask!).
Make sure your levys are sound for the flood of info you'll get on equipment, but bottom line is, your blaster will be dedermined by how much air your able to feed it.
Pressure feed units are more efficiant, more cumbersome and pricier than a sifon feed type.
$300 should be more than enugh to get all the gear you need for your projects.

After reading the article on electrolysis I don’t think I’m going to get a sandblaster
