    O... i see

    i had to go look. Mine came with that. Being the first blast cabinet I've never owned..thought they all had that.

    I will say.. i didn't know what it really did though.

    so, I can control the flow of media by closing/opening the "metering value"? I thought it had something to do with letting air into the system (like I said...never had a blast cabinet before)... so, I want it wide open? For normal everyday usage?

    I’m a little confused. How is your media delivered to the Nozzle now? I had only heard of two Styles: pressure and siphon, with pressure using a pressurized media pot like mine, and siphon using a system like pictured above. Now my previous siphon feed just had a tube directly into the media at the bottom of the blast cabinet, and the gun had two tubes like pictured above. It did NOT however have the metering valve to adjust any induction air. Is this basically what you're adding?
