One of the best investments I ever made in my shop!

When it comes to cleaning parts, you just can't beat it. Most amature restorers are limited to using varsol on engine components, wire brushes and paint stripper for many others. They just don't do the job! As you expand your shop tools I would suggest that you place a glass bead blast cabinet high on your list.

Restoring parts is made easy and proffesional by blasting. It quickly removes rust paint, etc. leaving the surface ready for a fresh finish. Paint really sticks!

While the cabinet I have is an older one and not listed here, I like it's size for general purpose. It is 24"x24"x40" and has two doors, a vacuum and a light. If you want to do items the size of wheels, I wouldn't suggest anything smaller.
I have often considered a "bench top" to run walnut shells in, but have never got around to buying one.

I have found that you need a good screen to pick out the larger pieces removed, and there should be a good way to dump the beads to allow cleaning the bead suction line.

Some Suggestions
