I have a HF Blast Cabinet that I am using with my 6HP Campbell
Hausfeld Air Compressor.  This is one of the cheaper compressors, so
even though it works, I'm giving it quite a workout when using the

Did I read somewhere that you can make the blaster work slightly more
efficiently by reducing the nozzle size?    Does anyone have a
recommended nozzle size, I only got one with the cabinet, and don't
know what size it is.

Here are the compressors stats 
Campbell Hausfeld  WL6112
- 30 Gallon Vertical Air Compressor 
- 6.25 HP peak
- 6.1SCFM@90 peak
- 7.4 SCFM@40 peak

Thanks, I know this isn't a pro setup, and it works as is, I just want
to make sure that I'm not missing something with something as simple
as a nozzle change.
