There is some discussion about whether people should buy a inexpensive sandblaster or a quality, more expensive brand. I think it depends on what you are planning on doing with the sandblaster, but overall I have realized that some of the inexpensive ones aren’t that bad to work with.
Now, most people are thinking why would I waste my money on a cheap sandblaster and have problems with it. Really I would suggest to just buy a quality sandblaster even though it may cost five or ten times more. Not to sound like a cheap a$$, but some of inexpensive ones really aren’t that bad to work with, except a few minor problems.
When I bought my first pressure pot sandblaster, I decided to give one of those inexpensive 40 pound Chinese made pots. It wasn’t too bad of quality and saved me a lot of cash, but it had some abrasive flow problems.
So what I did was made a few modifications and will be making a report about them in the sandblasting training course. These small modifications are essential to making it work at its best and the great thing about it is they are fairly simple to do without costing a lot of money. In fact, the abrasive flow problem happens with expensive sandblasters as well. So if you have problems with your quality sandblaster, then you might want to check out my plans.

So to get back to the idea of deciding whether to invest in an quality expensive sandblaster or to purchase a inexpensive one. Basically, if your planning on starting a business doing sandblast work or will be using the sandblaster frequently, then you may want to invest in a better sandblaster.
But if your planning on sandblasting every once in awhile, then I think its safe to say a inexpensive blaster would suit you well. Just stay tuned to my modification plans for improved abrasive flow.
