If your not going to do another restoration Lin then a cabinet will just
take up a lot of space.
After cleaning up a batch of parts 2 years ago for my Healey I haven't used
my cabinet sense.
A good dust collector/vacuum is a must. I did the same thing my buddy did
a used a shop vac. Bad
move. I had dust every where before I new what was happening.
I purchased a small , top load
table top, blasting unit . One problem was that the vac would suck the
gloves off their mounts so I couldn't run the vac when blasting. I had to
open the lid a little to let some air in.
It takes a large compressor to keep up with blasting so don't buy too small.
If I need to use this again I will roll the cabinet outside to do the work.
Just my experiences.
