Your current compressor won't power anything but a shoebox size blast 
cabinet. The specs you give on it sound like something that was designed 
for nail guns. Those don't require lots of CFM and continuous operation 
like sand blasting does.
You'll have ti go shopping for something much larger.
Try Eastwood, TIP, or even ebay for a cabinet. You may even get luck on 
eBay with a used one.
