went to buy it, was concerned if my sears comp would be enough cfm. 1 week later bought it at moving sale for 100$ brand new (used 4xs on rims)SCORE!.the guy even converted it to be able to use a pressure pot for smaller compressors like mine......will be useing for drivewat resto. made a base from mdf and put it on wheels as i too am a tall guy 6'3..perfect height now no leaning over. and i can work outside the garage and avoid the dust.....

I've done a lot of blasting and figured it was time to pick up a cabinet. I got this one on sale for $180 and I've been using it heavily for the past week. So far there's been no major issues. The paint removal rate has been very good for a small cabinet. The included interior light illuminates the working area well. Pre-fitted intake and exhaust holes make installing a recirculating system easy. Replaceable sand shields for the working window and light make protecting the clear panels easy. Dust issues with 30 grit sand seem minor, even without the use of a vac/filter system. The only real issues with the cabinet were, an immediate small air/sand leak on the RH access door which was remedied by installing a foam seal on the cabinet/door mating area (a roll of foam tape was included with the cabinet so I didn't have to buy it). The cabinet has a slightly low design for a 6'1" guy (easy to fix by just placing the legs on some blocks or hunching over), and there is a slight leak in one of the gloves (a little sand comes through the stitches). Overall for a piece of cheap HF junk I've been pretty satisfied, and to be honest I don't think you can go wrong for the money if you get this on sale like I did and use a 20% off coupon (=$180).

When on sale, its a good deal. Issues are that the inlet hose sticks out the front which you can hit your leg on, the trap door is an all-or-nothing thing when you open it, I have to call and order the nozzles since they didn't sell them in the store. You really need to use a shop-vac with this unit.

great economical cabinet. I modfied mine where the plastic window is easier to remove by using screws and rivnuts so the replacement shield is easier to install and that solved the only issue I had with it.
