I purchased a Central PNEUMATIC 40 LB Capacity, Floor Sand-Blaster Cabinet, through Harbor Freight.
Watching several youtube videos about this product most everyone is unhappy with the performance of this very low quality Red China product.
99.9 % of the youtube videos are about the many different ways to upgrade this product so that it is usable.

Assembling the cabinet is challenging as it is not designed well and the manual is also very, very poor.

Anyways, I got the Cabinet together and in some places I used ¼ -20 or 10-24 Rivet Nuts, which helps a lot with assembly.
I also made a "Pipe Metering Media Valve" and attached it to the bottom of the media reservoir funnel.

The light that came with the Cabinet was junk, so I purchased an LED 17inch Under Cabinet Lighting (White 6000K), with magnetic mounting.

So one of the upgrades is to used a vacuum system to collect the dust from the cabinet.
This also makes some negative pressure inside of the Sand Blaster Cabinet.
I chose this ShopVac 2.5 Female Hose parts for a 5 gal Bucket or Buckets.
