The CrystalBlast Elite 2.0 is not your normal sand blaster. This is the Rolls Royce of blast cabinets and requires proper safety and operator training. The CrystalBlast is great for adding textures to metals and glass and can accommodate larger pieces up to two feet. Bring your notebooks and be ready to have your mind blown!
