The July 2003 issue of "Auto Restorer" has an article about building a 
blasting cabinet.  They use a shop-vac to blow air into the cabinet, and an 
old shop vac lower unit (without motor) as a dust collector.  They seem to 
think that this novel approach was more effective than the usual shop vac 
sucking the dust out.  Also makes the shop vac last longer.  I haven't 
tried this.  I'm just relaying info from the article.
