Glad you got that blaster figured out and working. With that type deadman shutoff valve, don't open and close it slowly, or it'll wear a track though the edge of the rubber seat and leak when closed.
Yeah I see that. I have one block almost wore out. Luckily for me it came with some spares and I am getting better with closing and opening. I wrapped some rubber bands around it to help it along. It also came with 2 - 1/8" tips and a 1/16" tip. For what ever reason it wont push sand threw those smaller tips. I just took the old one (1/4") and it works.
Today I was able to get the ash drawer blasted and polished. Now I just need to cement it and bolt it back together.
Question though - how tight are you guys drawing your bolts? Seems to me too tight and something is gonna break.
