Eastwood Blast Out of a Bucket Kit is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from big things in small packages I wanted something that didn't take up a lot of space and this was it. It works well with a good dryer. Haven't had any problems with it. I recommend this blaster to any beginner and for someone who isn't doing big job's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from well made This has the feel of a well made product. It has a fairly small blast area, so you would not want to tackle anything really big, but if you take your time it does a nice job. My 30 gallon, 6hp compressor with an air dryer kept up ok.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Homemade Blast Cabinet... I bought this to replace a cheap Harbor Freight blast gun that worked marginal with glass bead and almost not at all with 60 grit sand. I made a blast cabinet years ago to fit my needs and space in my garage with a home-made gravity-fed hopper. Out of the box, this gun wouldn't pull sand or practically any vacuum on the feed hose at all. Luckily I bought tip part number 20068 at the same time so I could experiment with different sizes. After messing with my air pressure and all sorts of other ideas, I threw the biggest tip in and boy did that make a difference. I quickly went over a very rusted railroad spike with twice-used sand and the results were awesome for just a quick once-over. I haven't used glass bead in it yet, because I usually only use that with aluminum parts, and my current projects are mostly sheet steel and cast iron. I'm using an Ingersoll Rand compressor 13cfm @ 90 PSI with pressure switch set to turn on at 100 PSI and off at 130 PSI, 1/2" NPT water/air separator on the main tap, foot pedal is present so my hand doesn't get tired of holding the trigger, but took it out of the loop to troubleshoot and haven't plumbed it back in yet, 1/4" NPT ARO quick connect fittings with 3/8" hose, old shop-vac to create negative pressure in the cabinet. Cabinet has plumbing to recirculate media, but I find that the gravity-fed hopper works much better. To get the best flow I made a cup at the bottom below the 1/2" hole in the base of the hopper that creates a pyramid of media in the cup and then the hose pulls through a fitting at the side of the pyramid of media as it falls out of the hopper (drain plug in the bottom of the cup). This prevents rat-holing of media and allows the hose to suck a little bit of air too, increasing the velocity of the media to the gun. Honestly, my cabinet is awesome and fits my needs perfectly, but if Eastwood has a cabinet that works for you, it's not worth the time to make your own. Don't forget safety - I use a good cartridge style respirator, safety goggles, and hearing protection during blasting.

Would 5.3 SCFM @90psi work with this?

Asked by: hankfan79
Since this unit requires 7 CFM it would not work well. You would wind up have a reduced output of media.

If this requires at least 80 PSI, what would you consider to be too high in terms of pressure?

Asked by: ChedNoseby
Usually the upper end of the spectrum would be around 120 PSI.

You mention using soda or glass bead for an engine block with this gun; walnut shells would typically be preferred for that, can this gun handle typical walnut shell media?

Asked by: slinkygn
This gun will only be able to shoot out a media that is 60 grit or finer.
