I agree with Ol'George that what you are looking at will not be adequate for sandblasting. X2 on looking for something used in your price range with the minimum spec quoted.

You might be better served at finding a larger, at least 5 hp 15 + cfm old air compressor on the internet, C list, spaced out bookie etc.
There are older name brands out there that will last your lifetime and have already lasted a lifetime that will serve you well
I understand your enthusiasm and commend it.

Thanks George, I will just keep searching for a 10cfm in the classifieds... ect. Thanks for letting me know!

Big investment unless you are planning on using it a lot.
I have one along with a big compressor and only use it for small parts as using one of these is a real PITA not to mention messy.
If you do it with cabinet you will be limited to small parts.
If you do it outside, the sand is pricey and another PIT
Can usually have all the biggest parts done for around $80
You will also need a provision to capture the moisture in the lines while blasting and compressing.
Good luck!

Welcome ! to OCC ,My experience with sandblasting is to take it to someone that has a sandblast business and proper equipment as it is a hateful nasty job ! Nothing wrong with having a decent shop compressor but likely you'll need to spend a grand or more to get one that would do a decent job of blasting, then after about the first minute or so you'll be looking for a fresh air supplied blasting hood so you can breathe,then you'll want to have a dedicated space for all the dirt,dust and spent sand or media to reside in that doesn't take a month to clean up after you blast for 10 minutes, not trying to discourage you but rather share "my" blasting experience !! Good luck

I agree!
Someone with the proper equipment can do it all in no time at all.

Thanks for all the advice and things to consider.

A blaster would be nice as I also make knives and refirbish old axes. If this one doesnt work out, I will try to find someone local to clean it up or just sand by hand or random orbital sander

For your axes and knives, use white vinegar.

I have a Harbor Freight cabinet for the smaller pieces and a cheap siphon feed gun for the larger ones. I blast the large parts outside on the gravel driveway and use the cheap Black Diamond grit. My compressor is a 60 gal 5 hp Porter Cable and it is barely big enough.

King, no dis intended but it sounds like you have none or very little sandblasting experience.

What you should do is go back and read athomas's post #15. Read it about 25 times because he is spot on about everything. If you still intend to go the sandblast route please be sure to read this...
https://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/92-102/default.html

On the other hand, somone has already mentioned electrolysis. It's cheap to set up compared to sandblasting, less messy, and less work. If you don't understand it, read about here...
https://antique-engines.com/electrol.asp
or search youtube for electrolysis.

Whatever you do, have fun!

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
