    Anyone have a DIY blast cabinet that will fit a bike frame?

    I don't know if this is too off topic but it is most definitely related to tooling for bicycle refinishing... Have any of you either built a cabinet that fits and works well for bead/sand blasting full frames? I have also been thinking of rebuilding the side 'door' area on a commercially available cabinet to extend it's capabilities and allow a full frame. If this is too OT, please PM me and we can discuss. I would like to build a sealed cabinet for use in a heated garage (pressure pot feed design is preferred but I am open to any suggestions and pointers).


    Thanks,
    Andrew.

    tempting but a little excessive of a purchase for what I am wanting to use it for - odd job here and there...

    Thanks,

    you can probably get it done by a place that does sand blasting for less than $50

    Another option for sure although I was looking at blasting and refinishing frames to supplement both my sanity and income. It also gives me a project to hammer away on when I can't ride (I wrecked my knee and it's slow going getting back out there).

    Thanks for all the advice and pics so far!

    Andrew.
