    Hey everyone,
    A friend let me use his sandblaster for a while. But I need to know where to buy the actual sand to blast with. Does anyone have any ideas? I live in NJ.

    Thanks,
    Zack

    For my blast cabinet I used pool filter sand. Dunno about an outside rig.

    "When the _________ hits the fan." is the term that first popped into my head when I read this...some modification is needed, but I'm not up to the task today. :D

    If you're worried about health use breathing protection!
    I used play yard sand. More important is the qaulity of the blaster and compressor.
