Clarke CSB20B Heavy Duty Blast Cabinet

"The grit came from E bay and a small bag-less vacuum from Tesco. The compressor is a 2.5h.p. one from Aldi. The cabinet uses approx. 10 cubic feet of air per min. I also have a vapor trap just before the connection to the cabinet"

"forgot to mention in my last post to get a water trap and fit it as close as possible to the cabinet as seen in this photo, as liquid is one thing that grit-blasting does not like, this one came from Machine Mart and as the pressure drops auto drains its self, I run mine at about 60psi. But if you start at about 45psi to see how it performs and work from there. It also helps if the compressor has a reservoir tank"

aluminum oxide? Baking soda?

Ultrasonic Cleaner

at the moment the ultrasonic cleaner that I'm using came from Micro Mark in America (I've just had a look on their web site to see what it costs now but they don't do it now). The inside of the tank is 310L X 100W X 70D, the size of the tank is OK for most locos but when I come to do a King I have to put it in four times i.e. cab down, buffer beam down, cab roof down and chimney down.

Citranox

Bench Grinder

For sharpening tools. Adjustable tool rest. Mechanical / star wheel dresser. Two wheels, one for steel and one for carbide tools. One aluminum oxide with fine grit (60 to 80), vitrified bonding and graded for medium (K) hardness. Fine (80 grit) silicon carbide wheel with a vitrified bonding and graded as soft (S).

Maybe one day...
