    word of advice, make sure the hoppers are sloped good, mine is having a little trouble sucking it up once the glass gets powdery, i gotta rig something up to keep it coming down, but its worked wonders for me, lets me do every big piece on my car, think im gonna throw some old fenders in and see how well she works.

    My pressure pot is having trouble with the glass after using it for awhile. It will go into the funnel and literally the center will fall out of it and leave a straight up and down hole in the beads the diameter of the hole in the funnel. My solution to that is to toss it, and I just found bags of media at Menards (thanks to olstyle's tip) for like $7.63 for a 50# bag. That makes it worth it to me to just replace it when it gets worn out.

    As for you rigging something up to keep the sand going to the bottom, I be a palm sander would work.
