    Cool idea. I do not really understand the large top fitting though. Is this just a cap to fill it (what size is that NPT). Also why do you "T" it off and run a hose to the bottom "T". Is this how they are supposed to be. Is this just to induce air into the sand at the bottom "T". Also what is your safety blow-off set at. I might make one.

    Pressure sandblaster from propane tank

    UPDATE 01/18/12

    Upon further reflection, and several friendly warnings from those more experienced in such things than me, i am removing all the original text from this post and warning others what a stupid idea this is, and it should not be undertaken if you value anyone's life. After reading the thread linked further down this thread regarding the danger of pressure vessel welding, i completely agree that it was way above my ability, and added to that fact, it was a rusty discarded tank to begin with. I wanted a project and I had the tank laying around, but I did not realize what a dangerous idea it was.

    To the several Brothers who objected to this project, especially tanglediver and Bearston, thank you for your concern and advice.

    I will concur with those advising not try this dangerous stupid project.
