Tools to Change Your Shot Blaster Blast Wheel

Before you get started, make sure you have your tools to change the blast wheel, including:

  • New blast wheel kit
  • M13 wrench
  • M17 wrench
  • M8 Allen wrench
  • Hammer or wood block

You may also want to grab a small dish to keep the nuts you remove in so they don’t get misplaced or lost.

Taking Off the Old Blast Wheel

First, follow these steps for removing the old blast wheel: 

  • Remove the urethane feed spout from the front of the blast cover. 
  • Loosen the clamps on the side of the control cage and remove the control cage and discard it.
  • Loosen and remove the four nuts that hold the blast housing cover in place and take the cover off.
  • Wedge a hammer head or a wooden block between the blast wheel and the side of the machine to keep the wheel still. Using the Allen wrench, loosen the cap screw on the blast wheel and remove.
  • Discard the old blast wheel.

Attaching Your New Shot Blaster Blast Wheel

Once the old part is removed and discarded, follow these steps to put the new blast wheel in place:

  • Line up the three notches on the blast wheel with the three pins on the blast wheel hub. You may need to rotate the wheel until you feel the pins and notches line up.
  • Insert the cap screw and tighten to secure the blast wheel in place, making sure to lock the wheel with a hammer head or wood block to keep it from turning while you’re trying to get it tight. 
  • Put the blast wheel cover back on, securing with the nuts.
  • Attach the new control cage, making sure to put the new notches at 8:30 and 10:30, as if you’re looking at a clock, then use the clamps to hold the control cage in place.
  • Finally, add the red rubber coupling and roll it up to seal the gap between the feed spout.
