Application Tips



Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well Ordered this blast gun a few weeks ago to replace the old cheap one in my red cabinet. The old one basically didn't work at all. This gun seemed to have some features not seen at this price point. The dual-tube pick-up in nice, and the nozzle is easily removable for cleaning. Overall it works very well. Fast and aggressive delivery of black blasting-sand. Be super diligent about keeping the intake tube buried in media. If the gun stops delivering, I'll check the pickup first, and then unscrew the tip. The media can get clogged in the tip. Probably this is from some moisture in my lines - I've not added any dryer yet. The tip is easy to clean and you don't even need to open the cabinet door. Overall I'm very happy with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blast out of bucket I bought this for my blast cabinet. I also use to blast right out of a bag of sand. It is excellent.
Date published: 2019-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great, great value Only thing to be aware of is pressure. It seems to work best around 50 psi or half trigger on my set up. So a cheap pressure regulator may help if you're going to use it for a good length of time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked great. I had a similar product that was not of the same quality and that didn't work well. I thought my compressor just wasn't up to the job. But the Eastwood product worked well. My compressor still isn't quite big enough to keep up, so I have to take breaks and let it catch up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Great product that performs well! This has made preping faster & easier. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Originally, I was planning to buy a sandblaster with a tank but decided on this instead and I did not regret it. Had a little issue with assembly as the clamps are two different sizes...easily switched around, stuck it in a bucket of media and got to work immediately. Just make sure you are using a good compressor with good water filter with this. I had an issue with moisture and slightly turned one of the tips oblong shaped because it was clogging. Not the product's problem but mine.

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 Excellent BUT read posts about nozzle size I purchased this a few days ago to replace a blast gun in my sandblaster that I could no longer find nozzles for. As expected, the product is well built and a high quality item. I read the reviews prior to purchase and noticed one review about the small nozzles provided not working. This is indeed fact. I was curious, so I hooked up a vacuum gauge to the suction line prior to installing in my cabinet. There is near zero vacuum pull with the provided 4 mm nozzles. As the other reviewer suggested, I also purchased a replacement nozzle pack - item number 20068. This includes 4,5,6, and 7 mm nozzles. I then progressively installed each and measured the vacuum draw. The 5 mm nozzle does pull some vacuum, but it really starts to kick in with the 6 mm and 7 mm sizes. At 7 mm, I am drawing a full 15 mm HG - this is actually higher than advertised. For my test, I used a standard 3/8 ID air hose. My compressor is a Campbell Hausfeld 2 stage 5 HP unit w/ 80 gallon upright tank, so plenty of air. Bottom line, this setup is probably indicative of what many of us have. I did not have a larger air hose, so I could not do further testing. So, short story, I do recommend this product but be aware of the nozzle issue. I am a long time Eastwood customer because of their blazing fast shipping and high quality products. In this instance, it is a little disappointing that this appears to be a known issue that has not been addressed or investigated.

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.

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 1 out of 5 by from Not Happy As of date the unit is non-functional, air is right, volume is right, it will not pick up the sand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blast from bucket is overpriced junk! Blast from bucket does not work . It is not worth the money I paid,for less money i bought a good sandblaster at Harbor Freight. Now i can't return the bad product because your computer is not working. I am not happy at all with your product or service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to like this I really wanted to like this. Purchased to prep alloy wheels for powder coating. barely any vacuum is produced, and only a small amount of media comes out the nozel. Tried at higher pressures, and with high flow fittings, no improvement. Another reviewer suggested he had the same issue, but rated peoduct 4 stars because things were improved with a larger nozel (not included). Why isnt the proper size nozel included? Out of the box, an air fitting was already attached, instructions suggest you need to install it. Second hand product that someone else already returned?

Questions & Answers

What type of media would work to remove heavy to light rust for my sand blasting bucket?

Asked by: Buddyboy1953
Our Glass Bead would work very well Item #13772 ... 100/170 Grit

I see 7CFM is the minimum required air flow. Is that realistic? How well will this do with a 60 gallon compressor rated at 11CFM? Will the compressor run continuously? I’ll be removing surface rust from car body panels.

Asked by: OldCarGuy
If your compressor has 11 cfm and a 60 Gallon tank, there will be no problem using this blast system. Just make sure that you do not exceed 80psi going into the blast gun.

Hello there - I was given a Harbor Freight blasting cabinet to work on my old TR4. I'm using 60 grit Alum Oxide but it doesn't seem to consistently feed into the gun at any PSI. Would you recommend the blast out of the bucket or something else ? Thanks

Asked by: Ingpark
This should have no problems with that grit of media as it can run 60 grit or finner media through it.

Could this work to strip all that **** (rust) off old brake calipers? And which abrasive could work for that. Thanks.

Asked by: Kris
The Blast out of the bucket will certainly remove rust from your Calipers. You can use Aluminum Oxide or Glass Bead. Your Media mus be 60 grit or finer, and no more than 80 PSI going to the gun.

What do you mean when you say “dry” air. Does this mean it has been through a filter/regulator, or is a dessicant or refrigerant-type air dryer required?

Asked by: Tootall
When using any type of blasting equipment you will want to have an air dryer hooked up because moisture will clog the media up.

Can the media be reused ? If so how many times?

Asked by: scottgp

At 90 psi, this barely pulls media (glass bead) 120 psi, same problem. replaced fittings/couplers w/ Milton V high flow. No improvement. Reviewer had same issue and suggested a larger tip. Why does this include tips that are too small to work?

Asked by: Andy
The tips which are included are perfect for blasting glass bead. There are two things to look at with a kit such as this. 1. Make sure your compressor can put out a bare minimum of 7 CFM@ 90 PSI. 2. would be to ensure the pick up tube is only inserted about 3/4 of the way into the media to leave the air return open and clear of media. If these are not part of the issue feel free to email our Customer Service team at for more assistance.

Why have such a short 5 ft hose? Seems like a 6 ft to 8 ft hose would be better for some jobs like my metal gate and fencing without having to put the bucket on a higher platform so can get to the top areas. I'd send photo but your not set up for it.

Asked by: Arthur DWB
We simply designed this to be an entry level media blasting kit allowing you to get into blasting without breaking the bank.

Is there much of a difference between this siphon blasting kit and Eastwood Blast Out of a Bucket Abrasive Gun? As the other is less expensive. Thank you in advance.

Asked by: jackie27
This kit works much better than the less expensive siphon kit. As S Church mentioned, this is our newest upgraded model. It is a high performance gun that draws 14 in Hg of vacuum at 80 PSI. It also features a more durable hose. This gun works so well, it is the gun we feature in our Eastwood Blast Cabinets.
