Q: Can I keep/use a sandblast cabinet in my garage in winter? Will it work or freeze? Can I safely use it inside? I’m buying the harbor freight $199.00 one this weekend.
A: Yes, there is no problem with keeping and using the sandblaster in the garage during the winter. It can’t really freeze up unless you have a lot of left over moisture. Other than that, I don’t sandblast glass as much in the winter because of the cold so if anyone else has had a problem, please leave a comment below.
You can sandblast in your basement workshop area, but I don’t recommend it unless the cabinet seals up the dust well. The dust can surprisingly get everywhere and accumulate after a while. If it is cold, you could also use a electric space heater or a kerosene heater in your garage.
