  That is a small compressor for blasting, it can be done, I did it with 
something similar but it is awfully small.  You can get a smaller nozzle 
that will be more efficient with that compressor but you will also be 
passing less blasting media and not cleaning as large an area so it will 
take longer to clean a part.  You can also check your current nozzle since 
those things do wear.

  I don't remember the details but when I had my small compressor I was 
using what TPTools calls their "small" nozzle which was about 1/4" hole, 
maybe 3/8" but I doubt it.  Using their large nozzle with my small 
compressor would overheat it very quickly but I tried anyway since it was 
much slower with the smaller nozzle.
