I'm not a big fan of Harbor Freight, but I figure this is one piece of equipment that won't matter if I buy it there.

I'm looking at buying this one: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=93608

Now, I thought its 40# capacity rating referred to blast media storage, but after looking at their bigger one that only stores 15#s of media I'm wondering if thats the max weight of the part it will accept before it crumples into a cheap piece of chinese tin garbage.

This is the bigger one: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=94274 but it seems at that price I would be better off making my own. I haven't ruled out building one myself, but just tossing ideas around right now.

Any input or other blast cabinets you guys would recommend?

So far from what I've researched, those Skats are always highly rated.

I always buy American when I can, even though its usually a little bit more. Thanks for the feedback.

Have had the first one you linked for a few years now. It will hold quite a bit of media as well as some rather heavy items. For the price I can't complain about it much.

Here are some upgrade ideas for it.
