I'm using a cheap siphon sand blast gun in mine. I have 170 psi shop air available but I found the media flow is reduced at that pressure. The pressure backs up in the gun. I use a regulator to around 90 psi and get a better media flow.
Drilling out the air jet can cause so much air to flow, you don't get as much suction on the media hose. I put a vacuum gauge on mine to set pressure.

Where are you guys getting the replacement clear covers that go over the window. Harbor Freight doesn't carry them. As a Matter of fact Harbor Freight doesn't carry any kind of replacement parts. I bought a soldering gun and the tip burned into. Went back to HF and was told that the soldering gun was a expendable item so they did not carry the tips as a replacement. go figure!

ok, since I last wrote this I went with the Tacoma sandblast cabinet redo. My HF cabinet was around 15 years old but still looked brand new. I never used it because it was a piece of junk. I was reluctant to buy the Tacoma parts but after reading up on it I bought it. Guys, like daylight and dark. I use my HF cabinet all the time now. If you guys want any information I can help you out. Let me know.

How much does the Tacoma kit run? I heard it makes a world of difference.

Mine seems to work okay, but I am interested in this kit. Where did you get it? Their Ebay store doesn't list them.
