Correction on PVC pipe size. It's a 2". The cut would depend on your hose size.
using the 12v inverter,get a cheap utillity light(rubber enclosed) from your local autozone or the like and run E cord with minor mod for cheap and durable long lasting light source.REPLACEMENT BULBS ARE CHEAP and so is utillity light.figure it out,it's so easy a caveman has done it.Just to mention, The light works also from my d.c. 12 volt inverter. I can run it off of the compressor with no major shock worries should I need to blast in a questional environment. Next time I blast a pool I'm going to have them drain it first anyway. Takes too long comming up for air.
Dust collectors can go boom and sparks generated while blasting can make certain confined space situations go boom:shifty:.My thread so I will go further. Low voltage dead man and such because they run off the "low voltage" compressor batery.
Explosion proof is is for exhaust equipment that is working with paint fumes that could explode, I own a paint booth. Blast media will never explode and there is no explosion proof nozzles or dead man switches for blasting for this very reason that I am aware of.
You can run it off the inverter so it is NOT 120 volts. it is 12 volt D.C.
The reason the commercial blast lights, check out construction equipment and supply company, are designed with a Low voltage light is so they are marketable for a mobile operation. They advertise it can run on EITHER 120 ac, that's right it says 120 ac OR 12 volt dc.
Mine will not electricute anyone who tries it like I do with 12 volt from an inverter. And osha would be just fine with it for this reason.
I'm not trying to pick a fight but why be such a downer over this goofy little project of mine. And you jumped to a few conclusions that I think I have explained away.
I like to show off my experiments and I think most people in here are glad when anyone shares anything.
