I have a Skat Blast 780TL. It came with one incandescent light fixture. I bought a second light fixture, drilled the hole and installed it. Twice as much light as before !

Just FYI, my Skat Plastic Media Cabinet the factory flood light got real hot....so I found a LED Flood Light, now no heat and even more light then before, and less electricity cost.

I bought the bulb at Lowe's and it had a Lifetime Warranty...it was like about $30.00, but the heat off the incandescent was killing me.

Skatblast from TP Tools here in my shop also. I've had probably 15 years and I'm very happy with it's performance. Like mentioned prior, easily maintained and TP Tools has all the replacement parts and maintenace pieces needed to keep the cabinet in great working order.
I managed to get lucky and purchase mine during their scratch and dent sale. Needless to say, the scratch was insignificant, however the savings was fantastic. I've purchased several replacement p-arts, like glass covers, glove set and gun parts. all great quality pieces too.





TP Tools even sells left hand gloves individually since that one always wears out first.


Only if you are right handed....

Yup - I've gone throug the right gloves in both my media blast cabinet and the bead blast cabinet.
But then I've done a few "tricks" to my cheapie cabinets that makes them more useful so they get used a LOT (except on things I'm going to plate where I want a proper original finish - on the other hand if the original was dull, then I do gently bead blast - but that's nothing to do with gloves.

I have used a Scat Blast cabinet for many years. Blast cabinets are not maintenance free. Any part is readily available for Scat Blast.
Why Ramblers? Chicks dig 'em. Whatever it is, I can take it apart.
