My dad and i are thinking about getting a sandblaster, as we have a 63 f100 to restore(frame off restoration). What all do we need? any tips and reccomendations are appreciated. Thanks.

I'd get a tube feed compressed air (looks like a paint gun)

walnut hulls or baking soda for blast media (you can get 50 lb bags at the feed store)

Those media choices wont eat your metal away near as fast. Always wear a mask and protective gear, 'specially eye protection

X2 on lawren. they make big ass gravity feed tanks for blasting, however, if your air is not 100% dry it causes issues. make sure you got a good air dryer, regardless

And make sure your compressor can keep up with the blaster not all can keep up all the time and end up burning out so make sure you got the cfm!

i'd recomend an oil lube compressor, belt driven. give it a break every now and then.. them oil free, direct cigrit compressors are junk. ive got one and it wont even power an impact gun...

I got a oil lube direct compressor, and it runs my impact just fine? I've even sprayed small stuff with it. its only a 26 gallon jobsmart.

Best way to go is a big ole fat belt driven compressor that runs on 220. Run a water catch, and I've used both direct feed and syphon feed, they both work exemptionally well. I however like direct feed.

Best way to go is a industrial screw compressor! :v them things are epic on a industrial level would be neat to see if I coyuld get a supercharger to work as one...

Fine-medium glass based media is good too, we used that at auto. Ive used it on aluminum paintball guns, magnesium rims, and I actually sandblased all of the body parts on my GT with it with no metal-eating issues. Itll rip through paint and rust faster too.
