Sandblaster Craigslist

Craigslist is a great place to find a sandblaster for sale. Buying one used can save a lot of money and the good thing is that the main blaster itself doesn’t wear out that much. Before you buy one through Craigslist, you might want to inspect the wear on other areas to make sure its not cheaper to just buy one new.

The parts do wear out but most of them can be easily replaced and are fairly inexpensive. The parts you might have to change sometime are the nozzles, the hose, and the mixture valves. The mixture valves are primarily found on the pressure pot which monitors the ratio of sandblasting abrasive to the air. When sand or any grit passes by these valves, through time the abrasives will erode the metal in the valve even at low pressures.

If the abrasive is a softer material, then you might not have to ever replace it.

I do having been checking out Craigslist for sandblasters for the past month and there are quite a few quality ones at decent prices as you can see from the screen capture in the photo. They are usually in the Tools section. This is a good place to start, but you can also rent a sandblaster or buy inexpensive ones like I explained in the information manual.

I am thinking about aggregating and displaying all the current ones for sale through Craigslist. If your interested in this, let me know.

    Thank you for sharing the information with us. I have just learned about sandblasting for a while. I just know that the sandblasting consists three major parts: the abrasive itself, an air compressor, and a blaster nozzle, which have been used for somewhat different applications. It is hard to search the related information online, so i will follow your post in the future.

I do restro work on vintage cars and bikes, purhaps 3-5 a year. If anyone who is reading this has one they would like to sell or found one that is not right for you, but you think might be suitable for a small restoration shop, please let me know.

    Thanks Eric, that’s good to know, someday I’ll need something I’m sure.
    I have an abrasive blaster cabinet, (that I haven’t put together yet, I bought it from Harbor Freight a couple weeks ago for $199). I would like at least one more if not 2 more abrasive blaster units, a conventional one and a baking soda one. I’m always looking to save money, thanks for the tip.

    Thanks for the heads up Eric. Alot are Harbor Freight units usually. Those will give you a basic platform to start A couple of cheap alterations and you can have a decent set up for the money. All depends how much you use it. I will be getting back to you via email about the other topic you mentioned when I introduced myself a couple weeks ago. I haven’t forgotten. Been busy. Keep up the good work, I’m sure we all appreciate it.
