Hey Joe -

That's because my mail server thought it was being clever and pruned you 
from the list of addresses (my fault, I set the thing up).  Here is my 
original response:

Hey Joe -

That's....that's brilliant Joe! Well, maybe brilliant is the wrong word. 
But, two questions and a thought pop to mind:

1. What are you building that outta?
2. If you build that outta wood or some wood like product, do you have 
plans to line the inside with anything?
3. Some big ass rubber gloves to seal those holes and give your hands 
some protection would work pretty slick (like the commercial versions, 
and the HF version have). HF has some blasting gloves for like $7 that 
might work.

My experience with sand blasting, which is somewhat limited, is that 
anything nearby that is in the path of the particulate (be it sand, 
soda, dry ice, walnut shells) gets destroyed - even from ricochets. 
Seems like you're gonna wanna line the inside of that contraption with 
tin 'er something.

Just my two pennies, spend them wisely.
