I'm back on my pc so it's easier to explain, my fingers are too fat for my phone,. The trailer is a small 6' trailer just used around the yard at my son's place. I'm just using the sand blaster to get to the hard to reach areas.

Have you considered buying a blast cabinet? I have this one from HF that I bought probably 10 years ago and it still works well.
https://www.harborfreight.com/abrasive-blast-cabinet-62144.html I have used it to blast everything from small rusty parts, brackets and bolts to cleaning up aluminum intakes etc. For small parts that are hard to hold I put them in a stainless steel mesh strainer and shake it around when I blast them.
I checked on the blast cabinet and a similar one to the one you found for $180 is $500 here, I guess blue paint is more expensive than red....:doh:

Thanks for looking, it's rediculous the prices we get hosed for here in Canada.
Welcome! That's a fact!! That last pic you posted is the one l was talking about, l bought mine about 15 years ago, but l have changed it now, added longer hose an a 25 gallon drum, cheap homemade but works really good!!

Just wear a good mask or respirator depending on medium your using.
