Tired of buying ShopVac after ShopVac to say nothing of filters.
Have you burned up so many ShopVacs on your blasting cabinet you're ready for a solution rather than just another replacement?

Uncle Franz Secret Lab has developed and tested an entirely new system you can build at home with just hand tools. You won't get pictures of Franz sitting with a bigboobed broad hanging her hooters over Franz's shoulder. This ain't this kind of secret lab. Franz just sits around petting the Dobie and coming up with idea after idea, and he doesn't sell sh!t on eBay either. Franz doesn't even have a secret Yahoo Group for people who buy his products, and he doesn't employ any soap salesman, clapped out hairdresser or loudmouthed engineer. Franz designs work!

The new Secret Lab plans are drawn on a computer now, no more erasable marker on a whiteboard pictures.
You get drawings. You get pictures. You even get assembly instructions that have been tested on people dumber than a Slow Flushing Turd.

Face it with Obama in office over two years everybody needs money, including Franz. Dobiechow ain't cheap. The days of the free Franzinator and Jonsiematic compressed air systems are gone!

Send CASH or USPS money order and get your genuine email from Franz with the plans. It's that simple, just $29.95 plus shipping and handling and your email will be on the way.

I have an old Royal vaccume cleaner I'm planning on using on the blast cabinet I'm going to build and shoot the dust out the wall through a dryer vent.

Tack Kirbys work better and you can get rebuild parts. Nice part of using a Kirby is with my new kit you can use the sack on the Kirby and keep the heat you paid for in the building.

Can't even get the good government cheddar here any more, only down in NY City stinkhole. Seems distribution was costing the government too much.

I have the royal I would have to find a kirby.

Franz I bought the Campbell Housefield suction blaster gun kit. I'm going to plumb it the way you suggested after the Holiday. I got the blaster downstairs where it's warm. I'll put pictures up when I get it done.

I thinking I'm not going to use the blasting cabinet that much but when you need to clean up something thats pitted or has slots and groves there is nothing better or faster that I know of.

Which model Royal? I can check on part availability.

You ought to see my American Lincoln I converted to an accellorator. That thing made a cloud blowing ABC powder out of the barn that looked like a smoke generator making white.

It's a maroon one, special model, got in back in 1991 or 92 as I recall. I'll check it out tomorrow.

Here she is. I've never threw it away because it's still good, it just needs a new brush but the wife likes the newer lighter models that get under things and have the removable dirt box.

The old red monster. Good machine, and most parts are still available at low cost from

All you need do with that to convert to a dust collector is remove the brush casting and make a hose adapter.

franz I have the hose and accessories for it. I'm thinking all I would need to do is take off the brush head and install the accessory hose and run it to a nipple on the cabinet .

What size hose though? Maybe I would need a bigger hose.

I could cut the accessory hose short and run it into a homemade adapter for a 3" or 4" hose that conects to the cabinet.

Give me a little time to find an exploded drawing of a Royal Tack.
How the hose enters the fan on that design is as important as diameter.

The fan design itself can move tremendous CFM given the overall opening around the brush.

Found it Tack right at, complete diagram of the machine and parts listing.

Looks like you can just pull 3 screws and make an adaptor to a shopvac hose with some PVC & glue.

Probably don't want to open the inlet to the fan though.

Probably a good idea to paint the inside of the impeller housing with rustoleum and toss some blast media on while the paint is still tacky to act as an impingment buffer.

The measured drawing is now ready for delivery to PAYING customers!
