We auctioned off some stuff at my work and got a nice Cyclone Manufacturing 4224 Sand Blasting cabinet for $75. It looks similar to this one but blue, . It has a full open lid and seperate dust collector. I already have an oven in the shop so all I need is a beginner kit from Eastwood and I can start powder coating.

If anyone coming to the Midwest gathering needs to clean anything up, bring it with you and we can try it out.

Found a picture of the cabinet still in the storage unit. I will try to get better ones tonight when I get back to the shop.

Is that black canister the house vacuum they are using to collect the dust? Did you get the bandsaw also?

Turns our what I got is a 4040. Only 40 inches wide instead of 42. Oh well. Yes the black canister is the dust collection system. Has a white hose that ties into the cabinet and has a small 110v fan that pulls out the air born dust from the cabinet. No I didn't get the bandsaw. It was a 3 phase beast and the wanted to much for it. I am running out if room in my shop to fast as it is now. I don't need a huge band saw like that taking up space when most of my frame is done now.

After finding the model number on my cabinet, here is the exact one I have except mine is blue.

Cyclone Manufacturing Model 4040

They are selling them new for $1600, at $75 I think I got a good deal.
