Shortcomings

This tool is great when working on soft equipment.  However, it can prove pretty challenging when walking on hard surfaces like steel. This is because the blaster may fail to produce sand but rather a lot of air consistently. The machine will finally do the job but will take a lot longer – this may not be ideal for most people.

And unless you use fine materials, the machine tends to clog – There may be a problem with a walnut shell blasting and other course materials. It is, therefore, best to stick with fine sand to avoid problems later on. Also, the replacement nozzles are hard to find.

As a safety measure, cover up your head and other parts of your body.
