Hwo To Operate a Sandblaster

The first thing you need to do is assemble your power head components. You need a power head, the nozzle and the siphon air jet. Attach the power head assembly to the gun of the machine. Your next step is to attach the siphon hose to the siphon air jet.

You then need to switch on the machine and start sandblasting your items.

Put your hands into the protective gloves and get your foot in position to push the pedal and send the sand into the cabinet. To get the sand to come out and actually blast or smooth the item that you are using, you do need to press the pedal to push out the sand. Then, blast until you are happy with the way that items appear.
