The Micro Abrasive Blaster is designed to give the user the ability to sandblast with or without a stencil. The precise even flow of abrasive allows you to draw or write directly on the surface of the glass. The unit consists of a machined reservoir, and easily operated foot switch, a nozzle holder the size of a pencil, and the necessary connecting hoses. The Micro Abrasive Blaster comes with a .032 carbide nozzle.
The Micro Abrasive Blaster is designed to operate on compressed air from a compressor or bottled gas. 60 to 120 psi is required and 100 psi plus should be used for carving. Glass beads, aluminum oxide, silicone carbide, and other media's ranging in sizes 150 mesh through 400 mesh can be used. It is recommended that a water separator be used with the Micro Abrasive Blaster. When used in high humidity areas, the abrasive will absorb moisture, causing it to pack. If this happens, you will get an uneven flow of material making it very difficult to work with the unit.

Building Your Own 'Blasting Cabinet'
For those wishing to recycle your abrasive material, we suggest purchasing a plastic storage box (the size is up to you), cutting "hand holes" on either side, then using a piece of clear glass in place of the box lid.
To begin blasting, place the project inside the box, feed the compressor hose through one of your arm holes (or cut a new hole in a location most convenient for you), attach it to the siphon gun, place the clear glass 'lid' on your box and blast away!
