Help with DIY sandblasting room
I am planning on making a 8'x8'x8' room for sand blasting. Now what I need some help with is how would I go about recycling the "sand" ? Also any recommendations on ventilation for the operator? What I have in mind right now is having a grated floor but I'm not sure how I would go about getting the "sand" filtered from the rust/paint/ect. back to the tank.

With a Smooth Flat floor,......
You can Sweep,+ Shovel up the sand,+ drop it thru a Screen,+ Funnel into the sandtank.........
Making the Screen vibrate will speed the process......

Will this work with all blast media that can be reused?

I don't know why Not,..??....

You might have to vary the size of your sieve to match whatever media,+ knozzle size you're using......
