Introduction: Sandblaster Homemade

This is the Sandblaster I made using an old water heater tank (about 30Lt and wall mount type) the only modification need to the tank apart from the welding of the wheels , leg and handle  was a 4mm stee plate cutting with a cylindrical part with thread welded at the cencter for adding the sand as you can see on the photos !
The reason i made a sandblaster is because it cost me about 100 euros where as if i bought one i would have cost me about 400 euros !!! So buying one was not an option
If their are any questions or i didn't give a detail enough explaination please ask  !
Here is a video woth some more  detail to it :

Nice work! It might be a good idea to direct the pressure relief output downward with a nipple and an elbow, that way it can't blow your nuts off. : )

Where did you get the funnel? Is it something you made or purchased?

Nice job given me a few ideas, much better making it my-self than buying finisher one.

Very nice job! But I have two questions. What do you used for cup on top? Some scrap or what? And what compresor do you have 8 bar 25, 50 Liters? And for a spark cheramic nice idea!

How do we know that your project works? Could you post a video of your work in action?

thanks though the nozzle wasn't my idea it was from someone that did sandblasting for some time and knew a few things about it !!

Can you make a more explicit instructable?
I'm interested in your project, but i's not very explicit.
