I like, some good basic principles and some lateral thinking combined.

However, "instructables"? What happened to the good old "instructions"?

It is an American site I came across it has worldwide members and some very good ideas they even have workshops you can go to and use the tools and machines for a small fee to make your stuff it's called techshop yet another americanism.

I could use a bigger compressor but I'm using a spot blast gun that I have taken the collector bits off so for the odd job works fine if I need a big manly job doing I just have to sneak it into work and use the purpose made setup which runs off a huge screw compressor but it is a pain trying to get stuff done at work at the mo as the c**k sucking pr**ks have to be walked past to get to my workshop.

I can't remember what the cfm mine is but the blast gun does tax it I'm looking at getting a bigger receiver so there is more stored air as only have a 24ltr tank but the pump fills it up fairly quick.

I have a pretty frickin huge compressor, and when I sand blast I get about 10 minutes before I have to wait for it to cycle. Sand blasting uses loads of air.
