sometimes less is more, looks like a good design to me, if it works well no need for a funnel.  like I said earlier when I was thinking complex, something similar to my big freestanding blast cabinet. but this is more cost & time efficient to build. instead of the work table u have yours on. I could use some 2x2 legs

The plan has always been to get 2 x 4 s for the legs. One day I will get to it.

I'n not sure if 2 x 2s would be enough. It is pretty heavy with 50lbs of grit in it.

So I decided to try etching one of the yeti style mugs, like the rest of you, I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Has anyone tried taking one to the buffing wheel and putting a mirror finish on it then blasting?

I know it would scratch easy, but I bet it would look real nice for a little while.

I have not done that, but I have seen it done. They come out really nice. As for holding up against scratches you could powder coat it with a clear coat.

I found these pic's looking for powder coated / vinyl stuff.

I think I got the stuff from papilio. Printed, water slide decals.  EDIT: just checked, they where laser printed, water slide, BAKE ON transfers.

White powder coat, then decal then clear powder coat.

2 sided, so 3 in total.

Everyone needs a work shirt.

Made this for the husband of the main owner of the campground in SD.

He is legally blind, but has to help out as much as he can. So I made him head of security. If I had to guess, early 70's.

And he still drives from the house to the campground. < 1/4 mile.

Strangest job I have ever been asked to do.

310 1.5 inch circles!

Got dizzy watching the cutter, but could not look away. Almost fell over weeding for the same reason.
