Hi all,
I've been using a small (5 gallon) Genie shop vac on a
small blast cabinet for over 4 years without a motor
failure.  I recently built a much larger cabinet and
found my "old reliable" shop vac didn't draw enough
vaccuum.  I've upgraded to a 20 gallon Rigid shop vac,
and the CFM issues were resolved.
