        No....... Don't buy it yet!

        Before you buy check out http://www.harborfreightusa.com/html...on/coupon.html
        It will save you 15%, so 15% of $600 will put another $90 in your pocket. This coupon is for in store only and not all stores have the blast cabinets but the one I go to in Michigan sometimes has them, they will also order them.

        Good luck!

            The cab is sold everyday at $699.00 and it is now being offered at $599.00 ...that's your 15% right there...a little more actually. The delivery charge was $66 and change, delivered right to my shop. And seeing how the shipping weight is 297 lbs and I paid NO tax...they can bring it to me for that price!

              Blast Cab arrived yesterday, well packed and all the pieces there. Took about 1 1/2 hours yo put it together. Cleaning the shop organizing, gotta build a small platform to replace the temporary bucket lift for the 30" lil oven, LOL. Making progress.

                I have the same cabinet. The nozzles are special order only as well & take approx. 2 months to arrive. order some right away if you are planning on using the cabinet often. Did you get the dust collector made for this cabinet too? the legs wobble like hell & if you put casters in the pre-drilled holes they will wobble even more. Weld some braces to the legs as support; it will prevent the wobbling. Also install a moisture trap just before the regulator. they gave me $100 off too because it was on back order for 3 months when I first bought it last year.

                  I have a moisture trap ready to install right where it goes into the cab. Yes got the dust collector too. I have a Miller 180 Mig and will weld at will when the wobbling starts!!! Thanks for the tip.

                      Compressor: It's a Husky 60 gallon, 3.2 HP, 11.5 @ 40 psi, 10.2 @ 90psi, 135 PSI Max.

                      Blast Cab says: 125 psi max , 13 - 15 @ 80 psi


                      Do I have a big enough Compressor Any reccomendations, love ot hear.

                        maybe! you'll have to test it out. you might be just on the edge of not enough volume. If you are going to use an air hose to feed it use a hose no longer than 25' of a 1/2" hose. I have a 10HP 120 gallon tank & I have no issues.

                          I'll set the cab within 10 feet of the compressor and give it a whirl. Reclaim/dust box is back ordered 20 days they says, darn!

                              I hope that doesn't happen to me, or I will HAVE to wreck my shop vac. If the compressor isn't gonna work, I get a big one, try what I have first. Do you have the part numbers for ordering this 3 month wait "tips"?
