Very nice! I thought maybe it was some sort of antique engine.

Your work is beautiful.
...every dump I take is original too, and it doesn't smell any better because of it's originality.

Awesome work.  In Manhattan you could sell them for triple those prices no problem.

I upgraded to a 5hp 1 phase motro from these guys and it is excellent.  They normally run sales on the 5 hp motors.  I think I got mine (WEG 5 Hp) for like $185 shipped IIRC

I used to work down on Wall Street and there are a ton of High End Boutique shops in the Greenwich Village and tribeca area.  Let me see if I can find out a few names. 

Alot of my old traders live down in that area.  Them spending $10k on a couch is nothing lol

Actually I paid nothing for the 5hp Single Phase motor because I sold the 3 Hp 3 Phase motor on ebay that came on the compressor for more than the 5 hp cost lol

Ya it takes a lot of air to sandblast (picture shows how much based on nozzle size) if you want better results also consider a media reclaimer with your dust collector as this will clean the media and let you blast more efficiently (keep media from becoming to small) you can consider a low cost collector like those from Cyclone manufacturing.  More on

FYI
To anyone who comes across this thread in another 4 years.

I just bought a used HF blast cabinet and I used it with some glass media using my old 5 hp 120v compressor and it worked really well. I did a lot of small parts and 1 mag wheel. I took a few breaks when doing the wheel as it got dusty and hard to see, but that was because the breaker kept tripping when running the compressors and a shop vac at the same time.
