Picture of Collapsable / folding media blast cabinet / enclosure
Removing rust, paint, scale and corrosion can be a pain. An easy way is to use a media blast whether it be sand, glass or any of the numerous different medias all with different properties for removing what you want to clean in different degrees of aggression.  You can use a blast cleaner outside but it can be a lot of clearing up so if you can enclose it it makes for an easier job and better reuse of the media and be more cost effective.  In this instructable I will show you how I made a large folding enclosure for my blast cleaning gun.

Step 1: Safety first

As with any project take the time to think about what you want to achive and how to do it with out putting yourself at risk it is your responsibility and no-one elses, I spent a long time planning inorder to build this project with the least amount stress.
