My son sent me the video listed below and I put together one of these little blasters this morning. I tested it out on an anodized aluminum bottle opener that I had laying around and it worked pretty well. If I were to make another one, I would make a smaller opening in the nozzle and epoxy the bottle to the tube so it won't spin around.

You'll still need a decent sized compressor to use this blaster. My little pancake compressor wouldn't do it, so I had to dig out my 4.5 hp, 20 gallon Craftsman compressor.

...and of course don't forget skin, ear and eye protection in addition to a decent particulate respirator for the silicosis risk.

All good safety tips that I should have mentioned.

I am using some leftover Garnet media from my larger blasting tank. If I ever use that all up, I will probably switch over to walnut shells.

Thanks for the tips!
