Suction Blasting Gun Kit
Spent last year dealing with sandblasters from northern and or harbor freight. Was very frustrated. Saw this at northern tools and decided to give try. No issues the whole day. Did not have to spend 150-200 on new blaster. A bucket and this item and that was it. Sandblasted a car frame in one ( my air compressor is not the best). If I had a better compressor would have been sooner.
Love this "cheap" blaster unit!

Low cost Blaster
This is a low cost and good way to sand blast items. Very easy to set up and use, just hook up air and stick the syphon tube in a bag of sand. I sucks the sand up real well. I do recomend a good quality moisture filter in your air line to stop excess moisture build up. All in all a pretty good product for the $.

Good quality for the price. Used it to blast light corrosion off of a thin steel door skin with crushed walnut shell abrasive, & heavier rust off of 1/4" steel with steel shot. Also introduced powdered insecticide into the soffits on my home to solve a Yellow Jacket problem - my blaster is not just for blasting anymore!
The only negative so far... no user guide. Air pressure/cfm adjustments require experimenting, which can waste time & abrasive.

Great product for little money! Great for small projects, Would be good for larger projects too if you're not in a hurry!

This is a cheap way to get into sand blasting. I used this kit to blast the rust off a jeep axle. Worked well.

great blaster for the money
The shipping was very quick. The kit was easy to set up and get started. Works good, not as good as a booth that costs a couple grand, but can't be beat for the cost and the portability.

I used this sand blaster to restore my chevrolet nova. Overall I'm very impressed with this blaster. The spray pattern is about the size of a quarter. Not that big but not to bad. I did my entire trunk, and interior in about 3 five hour days. I'm really o.c.d. with it though.. because it's so fun to watch the layers and layers of paint being blown off in seconds. Sandblasters are only as strong as the compressors. Being this sandblaster is siphon fed, rather then a pressure pot, it need's more pressure to keep it going. I used a titan 5hp gas compressor, (used for contractors with nailing roofing) it has twin 5 gallon tanks and shoots 15 cfm at 90 psi. Overall I love this gun. I used silica sand in it, till i read somewhere that you can die from exposure to it by a illness called silicosis. SO DON'T SAVE A DIME AND USE SAND.

Could be better
I had borrowed a cheap Sear sand blasting unit but I also had one I bought at a garage sale that didn't have a gun. I thought I'd buy this one so I could return the one I borrowed. Had them both at the same time and switched back and forth testing the two. The other had porcelain head and this one is steel, not sure if that what made the difference but the other one really out-did this one. This one did work ok if it was the only way to go but since I had the other one I put this away and just used the other for the job. If I do more I'll probably try the more expensive units and see it they work better.

Works as advertised
This was a replacement gun for an old sandblasting cabinet [original gun nozzle overly worn]. I liked that it had extra nozzles.
