    I like that wet filter idea! I've purchased a used sand blasting cabinet from a co-worker that I'm going to try and get setup this weekend. Unfortunately it will be right beside the compressor so will be a tad noisy but it is what it is!

    I also like this wet filter idea, which fitting gets the vacuum, the 90 or the offset?

    Every other time I have used one, I just pop on my ear muffs with a radio in them. I would take a noisy blaster over not having one!

    I can't take credit for it, I just found it in another forum on accident searching for lights. The 90 goes to the vacuum, and the straight pipe goes to the sandblaster. I actually did mine slightly different on the inside. I ran the one pipe straight down from the coupler, and put a 45 on it closer to the water, instead of doing the (it actually looks like a 22* fitting) on the top, and then running the strait pipe down. I had 45's in the shop, and it just fit in the bucket better for me. You only need a few inches of water, and the pipe with the 45 sits a few inches above the water. Although, when I was doing research on it, some people actually run the pipe into the water.

    I too like that wet filter. I need a better blaster, mine is a cheap HF deal...it works but it's messy and hard to capture all of the media to re-use it.

    I'm ready for it, have a decent set of ear protectors. Learned my lesson in the navy, working in the engine room of a small diesel driven ship for four hours at a time while on watch.

    Sitting between a large 650 HP diesel main engine and a smaller 50KW generator running behind you, you learn to wear hearing protection very quickly!

    That looks cool. The one my buddy has that I usually go over and use has a big professional vac on top of his blaster, but so far I am impressed with how well this deal works, especially for the price! And I actually got the shop vac free, as one of my tenants left it when they moved out. I figured it didn't work, but it works great! I can't believe what college kids leave behind when they move. I have gotten a lot of good things over the years.

    I have the same dust deputy hooked to my sandblast cabinet. It works great. There isn't a trace of any blasting media inside of my shop vac. I am very satisfied!
