Being a newcomer to this list, I apologize of this has been covered in   
before.However, I was told that someone on this list had discussed a cure
for a problem I'm having with my sandblaster.

The cabinet I have is a smaller table-top unit I purchased from Northern
Hydraulics. It's a red painted sheet metal cabinet and uses a siphon   
to deliver the sand which collects at the bottom of the cabinet. The   
is that the sand (aluminum oxide crystals, actually) spits. Sometimes I   
nothing but air being delivered, sometimes air and sand. The aluminum   
oxide is dry, and I can fairly steadily get about 8 CFM of air at 100 PSI   
to the gun. Yet it spits. I think the problem is in the pickup tube, but   
I'm searching for a cause/cure.

Any help would be appreciated.
