    It was not cheap but the cabinet is a real pleasure to use now. Media changes are reasonably quick too. Made a cyclone dust collector for it too as well as putting better lights inside.
    All said and done it just works now. No more frustration or fiddling around.
    This is what I am attempting to achieve at half the cost of the kit. $300-$400+ for a kit is way too much IMO. However if you call and talk to Mike at Tacoma Co. he will walk you through all the pro's of his systems and explain what and why things need to be done a specific way. Very informative man. He had his wife email me a price list. I would post it up but don't have his permission and don't think it's appropriate. I thanked him and let him know I was a cheap *** and did not think I would be buying one of his full blast cabinet kits.

    One of the pieces to the puzzle arrived today. The main piece to the new siphon set up I will be using. The Metering Valve. I placed a water bottle cap in two of the pictures for size comparison.

    I have the harbor freight cabinet I replaced the hose and put a gun they use on their sand blast pots the small plastic ones and it works well.

    So I go to Home Depot to buy a drill arbor for the hole saws I have and they don't have one that will fit my saws. So I have to buy a whole new set up. $30.00 later for a Milwaukee saw and quick arbor set up.

    Any one ever use the Milwaukee Hole Dozer set up?
