    I would like to purchase a portable sandblaster to remove paint and rust from some mustang body panels. This tool will not be in constant use but I want it to work when I want it to. Does any one have any recommendations ?
    Thanks in advance

    yes ,i have the small Harbor Freight blast pot and it works very well .
    TPI makes a real good one .the problem is any of them will only work as good as your compressor . i bought the biggest one Lowes had and it keeps up but runs all the time when i am blasting. the pressure guage does not work on my blaster so i am not sure what the pressure holds at the pot, but it will peel the skin off your hand. dont mess with the suction type they are worthless, you want a pressure pot. i have a military air compressor from 1953 that keeps 80 pounds wide open with a 3 bag pressure pot that i use for large things .
