OK gents, I have a nutty question for all those with a sand blasting cabinet...
The cabinet we got from Jeg's (which is a POS I might add!) has two ports that I'm assuming is an Intake and Exhaust/Vacuum port. The larger of the two is on the back right end of the cabinet and has a chimney on the inside. The smaller port is on the left end of the cabinet and opens directly into the cabinet. Both have a pop off covers to open and close them to the outside.
First, is my assumption correct and second, which is intake and which is exhaust? Confused

I have a cheap ass one from HF.  The exhaust has a filter to keep the vac from sucking the media out.  I don't see the purpose of an intake since you are feed compressed air in to begin with.  I say use either one for your exhaust and leave the other closed.
