I recently purchased an inexpensive bead blast cabinet to aid in the
body-off restoration of a Model A Ford. I had planned to wire brush the
chassis components that are too big to get in the cabinet, but I am so
pleased with the bead blasting that I am considering purchasing a sand
blaster to do the frames, axles etal. I notice there are at least two types
of "buckets": one is open and the media is propelled by a siphon action at
the gun (like the blast cabinet). The other seems to be a pressurized
bucket that I assume propells the media by pressure from the bucket.
What are the pro's and con's of these two systems? Is my assessment of the
pressurized system correct?
