    Woke up this morning and realized Dad picked up our Mediablaster yesterday...

    The spot in the garage where it will reside(on the ledge where the welder and small compressor are presently).

    Size comparison with a 69 Firebird.... :haha:

    I think we need a new compressor :eek1: Ours is pretty hefty(old industrial unit Dad got years ago), but I don't think its up to this task. Every axle I install from now on is definetally making a trip through this badboy.

    My uncle works for a Finishing company. They do mediablasting, tumbling, etc, and sell the products to do so(media, sand, chemicals, etc.). He hooked us up with this beauty. Hopefully my cousin and I will get some sidework mediablasting lots for his company. I used the one he has at his work a few years back(same size) its badass. I did everything for my old 355 in a matter of an hour without ever opening the door. Its got a large turnstyle inside so you can just spin it as you want to get at a different angle or an entire different piece. Can't wait to use it. Guess the S10s Dana 60 needs to come back out.

    Holy mother of god, you have no idea how jealous I am. I need that for the motor I'm working on now.

    dad pointed out something I didn't notice. See the little fold down door under the big door on the side? The turntable has rails and slides out so you can easily put stuff on it then push it back into the chamber.

    Whoa, that's a BAMF blast cabinet! Nearly as big as the "big one" when I worked at the transmission pit...

    That's got to be the biggest blast cabinet I've ever seen!:shocked: Gonna take a big ass compressor to run that too....I'd say at least 200cfm. That'll be awesome having that to use to clean all of your parts.
