Sand Blaster

This is very easy to make and works very well. I got this idea from the YouTube channel The King Of Random.

Step 1: What You Need

Supplies: plastic bottle, pen, and an air gun.

Tools: drill, bits, and a knife.

Step 2: Very Important

You also need an air compressor.

Step 3: Cutting the Tube

Take out the tube of ink and clean it out. Cut a trench out like in the picture.

Important: the tube needs to be about 3/16 of an inch.

Step 4: Drill a Hole

Drill a hole in the bottle that the tube can fit in snuggly.

Step 5: Putting It Together

Put the tube in the bottle with the cut out part facing the mouth of the bottle.

Step 6: Finished

Fill the bottle half way with sand. Put the air gun and point at what you want to blast and blow.

My air compressor is at 120psi but I don't do full throttle. Just watch the top of the bottle and make sure it doesn't pop up too much.
