When it comes to the DIY videos that you come across on YouTube, sometimes, you need to be careful because some of the objects are, well, useless. Sometimes, at best, they’ll be an overly complicated way of accomplishing a simple task. This time, however, we check out something that might actually be useful! With a couple of simple tools, this DIY demonstration shows us how to take a soda bottle and make our very own sand blaster. Sure, this one won’t be as effective as something that you spend big money on but for a smaller project, this free and simple version might be just about perfect!
After a couple of easy steps, we’re well on the way to sand blasting. Basically, after modifying a basic compressor blow gun that costs no more than a couple of bucks and some people probably have laying around already, you’ll be able to manipulate the bottle in such a way so that the sand all falls down and is dispersed by the gun after being propelled forward by your compressor. Again, definitely not the perfect solution but for a temporary solution, doing something like this could really be the way to go.
Check out the video below as we’re given the rundown on this DIY and be sure to tell us what you think of this project that could be useful in your garage! It might not be for everyone but might be a handy little hack that you could find to be worth a shot, especially if you already have this stuff laying around and collecting dust! Is this something that you think would be worth trying out for yourself or are you the type who would rather just go out and pick up a standard sand blaster and spend the extra money?
