Media Blasting
#1
Don (Don65Stang)and I were talking last week about this project and he recommended I post this.
When I was MUCH younger with my previouse Mach, I always tried to not use family money on my expensive hobby. Dickered/swapped/built other peoples engines, You fellas know.
Mel and I are blessed with the presence of our 3 grand kids so here is how to build an economical, in garage, media blasting enclosure and not use too much cash.
1. Visqeen (Plastic) is very slippery so watch your step.
2. Left about 5 feet on each side on the bottom so you can fold it up toward the top for containment.
3. I cut my wifes PVC poles for her hot house to just wedge between the rafters and floor. (Don't PM her or I'm screwed)
4. Utilized the light fixtures and a staple gun to assist in holding up the roof and for good lighting.
5. Cut different size poles for garage door to floor since I don't want to suffacate and will have the garage door open with flaps for ventillation. Also I figure this will take 12-16 hours over 2 days and won't be able to do it in 1 shot so need to be able to close the door in between.
I'll update the pics tomorrow when I tie it all together.

No, tested it last week just enclosing the front end. Nothing escaped after 2 hours and that was a pain plugging up.
