Everything To Know About This Parts & Tools Blast Cabinet From Harbor Freight

Being only $200, you may consider Central Machinery’s cabinet an entry-level model. Other options on the market could easily run closer to $300 to 500, like Eastwood’s 25lb-capacity modular blaster. Despite the price difference, they share similar functions and can use the same media to blast automotive parts and tools clean.

The cabinet is only half the equation when it comes to cleaning. Its high-pressure system is designed with a siphon gun attached to an air hose that connects to an external source for clean compressed air.

The 30lb blaster from Central Machinery, a brand also known for its ultrasonic cleaners, supports a maximum operating air pressure of 100 pounds per square inch (PSI). This means the media chosen will shoot from the ceramic gun at a high velocity and chip or scrape away at the surface to remove foreign materials and rust.

Comparatively, Eastwood’s costlier model has a lower air supply requirement of 7 cubic feet per minute (CFM) at 90 PSI compared to Central Machiner’s 11CFM at 90 PSI. This would result in a slightly less impactful blast and more time needed to clean or smooth the same tool.
