Archive for the ‘Sandblasting’ Category

I recently picked up a sandblasting box and wanted to experiment with a simple but unique project.

I found this old cobblers stand in my father-in-law’s warehouse. He wanted $15 for it and I couldn’t pass it up. 

  
I am not sure what I will do with it once I am finished but this is the perfect canidate for sandblasting. We will blast it down to the bare cast iron and then repaint it.

This was my setup with the blasting box.

  
The box has a small vacuum to keep the dust down and I am running it off of a 25 gallon tank air compressor. It took a bit of fiddling to get the pressure just right and the amount of slag in the box but once I did I was happy with the results.

  
Check back to see the final results.
