A benchtop "bead blaster" cabinet looks like it could become a killer glove box, with a few mods, for those not on a budget. These can range from $60 to $100 new. I wouldn't try a used one due to the grit/dust which will be inside the cabinet.
Anyone done this yet? I'm tempted.

I'd love to hear some opinions on it as well. My girlfriend could be interested.
The biggest problem she's had with making a glovebox is getting the freakin gloves to fit right.

that's a pretty good price, imo.
don't recall any ever using one but i would think it could be adapted.

We have one of those at the auto repair shop i work at, it'd make a fantastic glovebox, it's already sealed and already has a large fan on it (though the fan sucks air out rather then blowing it in, i bet that could be changed) for a hepa pressureized glovebox kind of thing.
The other thing it has is a screen bottem, which would help things dry faster after being sprayed with whatever, and has a lot less surface area for contams to hide on...
I don't have that kind of cash unfortunetly :P
That one doesn't look like it has a fan on it. The one we have at my shop is a SNAP-ON one, and probably costs 4x as much, because it's snap-on :P

I was thinking about this not too long ago. Check some hardware stores like auto-zone. They had one for little cheaper than that and you wouldn't have to pay shipping.

I think you'd want to use it without any air source. Just plug it up, so the air can be cleaned inside, and remain very still during your work. Of course, you'd have better luck with a laminar flow hood, but at considerably higher cost.

Looks like it would work very well. Maybe try to find one that is a little shorter and fatter if they make em like that. Then you will have more working area.
