Step 1. Funnel Gasket Installation
Place funnel assembly upside down on a table or bench. Peel off paper backing from 1" wide foam gasket and apply to lip of funnel. Trim length of gasket as needed. Use a punch or nail to make holes in funnel gasket for bolt installation.
Step 2. Leg Installation
Place cabinet on its back on a table or bench. Remove (16) 1/4" x 20 x 1/2"L bolts and locking hex nuts from bolt packet. Insert 1/4" bolt through leg and into cabinet. Place 1/4" locking hex nut over bolt and hand tighten. Repeat above for remaining three legs.
Step 3. Funnel Installation
Stand cabinet upright. For easier installation, remove screws from black glove flanges and pull out flanges with gloves from cabinet body. With gloves and flanges removed, there will be extra room for funnel to be inserted into cabinet body.
Insert funnel assembly through bottom of cabinet. This will require holding funnel at a slight angle until once inside bottom lip of cabinet. Once funnel is installed, reinstall glove flanges to cabinet.
NOTE: BE SURE PICKUP TUBE IN FUNNEL AND TRAP DOOR ARE BOTH FACING FRONT OF CABINET.
Remove four 1/4" x 20 x 1"L bolts, and four locking hex nuts from bolt package. Insert four 1/4" bolts though holes in funnel (inside cabinet). Place locking hex nuts over bolts and hand tighten. Tighten leg bolts and level cabinet.
Step 4. Hose Installation
Insert end of blue 7' whip hose through cabinet grommet on front of cabinet. Connect to bottom handle of S-25 power gun by screwing into place (use teflon tape or pipe compound - DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN). Connect clear siphon hose from pickup tube in funnel to power gun (slip fit). Connect your air hose to other end of the 7' air hose.
Step 5. Vac Ferrule Installation
Remove four screws installed on the left side of the cabinet. Attach vac ferrule to cabinet by inserting sheet metal screws through vac ferrule and gasket. Tighten screws securley to compress gasket. Your shop vacuum will connect to this ferrule to remove dust created in blasting.
When using a shop vacuum, be sure to install the paper filter over the standard filter. Otherwise, abrasive could work its way into the vacuum motor, causing bearing failure. Glastar sells a preliminary filter, which can be placed over the conventional filters used in most shop vacuums. This filter bag is constructed of a special "soil release" material, which will be easy to clean and will help prevent dust and abrasive from passing through the conventional filters included with most shop vacuums.
Step 6. Load Abrasive
Add 15-20 lbs of suitable abrasive by pouring through top-loading door opening into funnel hopper. NOTE: always use a fine grade of abrasive to prevent clogging
We recommend straining through a double layer of ordinary window screen or our Abrasive Sifter. If it passes though the screen, it will pass through the nozzle.
DO NOT OVERFILL FUNNEL - Fill only about 1/3 of the hopper (in most cases, this is about 15-20 lbs of abrasive). Too much abrasive will pack and not feed properly
YOU ARE READY TO START BLASTING!
