Default bead blaster

Got any suggestions for a bead blast cabinet? I have used a snap on and was impressed. We will be blasting manifolds, wheels, brackets,etc. The snap on did not make any dust, wore shorts and a golf shirt while I blasted some parts at a friends shop. Thanks for any input.

Are you looking for a large cabinet-style blaster, Brian? Try TPTools in Ohio -

I've been using their stuff for years. Very good people to deal with!

Harbor Freight has a reasonably priced cabinet. Air compressor selection is wise with any type blasting. Vacuum port is a good feature to control dust. All depends on how much you wish to save or waste

I bought the harbor freight version with a 25% off coupon. Then added a few upgrades to it and it performs like a high dollar unit.
