Rated 4 out of 5Â by hormiga1 Worked just fine
The hopper worked well for my at home jobs. I purchased a coal slag to work with the sandblaster, and it worked pretty darn good. Easy to put together. I actually needed to purchase a connector for the gun but, that's about it. I sandblasted my outside metal chairs, harmonic balance, pulley, and headers. Still need to do a metal door. So I would definitely recommend this hopper. It is at an affordable price and does the job right.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Mangiate Works well...use only silica sand or blaster media..
If you are thinking of buying this unit with Walnut or Pecan shell media....forget it. It won't remove anything. This unit works well with play or silica sand or blaster media. It needs a dryer because a small amount of moisture coming out of the compressor will choke up the media.
Be sure to use it with a mask cause you can get silicosis.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Exador Works great if used properly
I had great success with this but you have to follow some basic rules. First, It needs a ton of air. I was shooting 5cf at 50psi. Anything less won't work. I was using glass beads on my pool/spa tile. It took 15 years of white off. Second, you must use a dryer. I used throwaway ones from HF for $1.99.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by RG911 Poorly Made
While the proper parts are there, they just didn't function and when I tried to clean it out after use it became clear the parts were just cheaply made and would not last long. The product only worked for approximately 15 seconds and then continually clogged. I replaced this with a product that cost 1/2 the price and worked great from the 1st try on.
