      Awesome Josh!.. I have used mine a little this year but not as much as the last two years..

      I have been using a buddys cabinet in his garage and powdercoating parts like mad in all sorts of colors for a "FREE" Mini Honda Chopper project..

      I was out of work (layed off like 1/2 the world) for 7 months.. and got a ton of details done on it.. But now finding time for the project is scarce.. the new job pays well and is 120% labor intensive.. I'm usually out the door at 7AM and home anywhere near 9-10PM.. weekends with 4 kids? Bah!

      Like any project you either have no money and all the time in the world or all the money in the world and no time..

      But hey enjoy these 50 videos on the little Chopper if you like.. the first one is an intro video I made ripping apart a movie to make the bad-guys WIN..

      I'll be back on it god knows when.. But as it draws closer to winter my house needs work to prepare for it first.. just did a new roof, rebuilt the front room, etc.. We had a really bad ice storm last year and that left many homes damaged and without power for 7 days.. My neighbor lost the chimney clean off the side of his house!

      Keep BLASTING!

        Do you have any of the deeblast guns now? I haven't used mine in a long time since I never found a gun that worked decent with small enough tips. I have 19CFM available, can I get a carbide tip for this gun that I can use with my current compressor?

          Just something to try
          I was having a problem of clogging at my gun. media would get all the way to where it enters the gun and clog like mad with anything larger then fine media. I looked at it and saw that the air jet covered part of the media inlet. now if this were a siphon gun I know why it needs that but being a pa blaster it does not need that to work. what i did was cut about half of the air jet tip off with a hack saw so it gave the media a nice clean path to get to the tip of the gun. Works great now I wanted to see how well and didnt even sift the media (med grit amberblast) and no clogging problems at the gun at all
          works like a champ

          oh yea sears sells the dee blast gun also I think i will pick up one sometime for that carbide tip or maybe the cambel/husky gun
