Opinions vary on what actually constitutes a “perfect” shop, but one thing is for sure: the more tools, the better. Of course, that doesn’t mean buying all the tools every time you need them. In some cases, like this ad-hoc sandblaster, you can throw together whatever you need from scraps. (Video, embedded below.)
Fans of junk builds will want to pay special attention, with the utmost respect. [GARAGEUA]Video below. Almost everything he uses to make this sandblaster seems to come from a pile of junk. Because through clever dissection, the body of Spark’s plug and its ceramic insulator were used in the sandblaster’s nozzle. And best of all, no lathe was needed for this job. All his drills and angles were done by hand using his grinder. Check out the build details in the video below. You may get some helpful hints.
We’ve shown you the junkier sandblaster builds before, but this is a clever way to save a few bucks and flex your mechanical ingenuity a bit. If you want a sandblaster and it’s something you’ll use over and over again, go out and buy one. But it’s also cool to roll your own.
