Compressor set up for sandblasting my rigs...

Postby Elliott » Tue Apr 20, 2010 9:12 am

I wanted something that would give all the air I could ever use for sandblasting or running any tool at any time so I snagged this unit off craigslist a long while back for $40. Had to run to OKC to pick it up and it had a 3ph motor on it. This is a DeVilbiss 432 series, the big one with a 10hp and puts out 29cfm at 175psi. Eventually I located a single phase capacitor start/run motor I could afford and dove into the restoration on this. The tank is at a shop being blasted and will be painted AMC metallic blue. Here is a before pic and pics of the compressor cleaned up and painted:
