A shell blaster has many uses in a dental laboratory. However, because of the size and expense of this piece of equipment, it is not often found in many office laboratories. This article describes a method for making a relatively small, fully functional shell blaster for less than one hundred dollars. The shell blaster can be changed into a sandblaster by removing the walnut shells and refilling it with 26-grit aluminous oxide.
