    It is big enough to blast a lorry engine. Also has a slot each side with rollers - looks like it is designed to pass 8x4 sheets through:o

    Now I have done quite a bit of sandblasting but never used a cabinet.
    It is very bare inside. No gun. No light. Gloves need replacing etc.

    What sort of gun should I buy for it. Hoping to acquire a bigger compressor - 30 to 40cfm.

    Looks like it had some sort of extraction system. There is a drainpipe inside.

    What are you going to use it for?

    I'd rig a blast pot with it, unless you have a serious compressor and the correct kit a blast pot will work far better.

    looks like it is supposed to be operated by people with 4 arms :laughing: and probably long ones as well

    looks much nicer to use than having to bend over a small cabinet and doing your back in

    That Rangie is quite rare and worth a mint.
    You are quite correct no room to swing a cat. It was tidy when I went to Portugal. I came back to chaos!
    One nice weekend day and I will be playing pallet jenga outside.

    The gloves attachment has been modified, this is due to the fact that Guyson charge an exorbitant amount for them. The original ones fit the triangular housing.

    Some more pics.
    I didn't realise but the reason it was sent back to us was due to an insurance claim.
    Bloke only got £120 said it was beyond repair :doh:

    the best would be a blast pot and hose with jet on the end .also have a suction gun for lighter work .if you have 30cfm that will run a 3mm jet at 90 psi all day long and comp will cut out as it will produce more air than needed get yourself a 4inch woodchip extractor and it will keep the cabinet free of fine dust and a negative pressure . that's what I use

    Have you ever seen one with slots in the sides like that?
    Guessing it is to blast sheet material.

    Yes very true.

    The front part looks identical to my Guyson cabinet.

    The glove door is identical, as is the window, but your window is presented as 'portrait' rather than landscape.

    I reckon it's a special made to order but using as much standard stuff as possible. Possibly for putting frosting on glass - pub doors that sort of thing.

    That is very interesting - I suppose I will have to cover over those slits or it will make a big mess. Always handy of course!

    if you have the 4inch woodchip extracta it can pull more air out than a comp can put in so its sucking in any air leaks in cabinet

    I thought the cabinet didn't need to be airtight because of the dust extraction creating a negative pressure inside the cabinet itself?
