Clemco Employee Refurbishing a Half-Century-Old ZERO Blast Cabinet
Cabinet had been used at a high school career center since 1969.
“It needs a makeover, new gloves, and a new view window,” says Clemco Quality Assurance Inspector Eric Brukerhoff of his new ZERO® BNP-270 Blast Cabinet, “but then it will be ready to go.”
Since 1969, students at a Missouri career center had been blasting with the cabinet as part of their coursework, but the school recently purchased two ZERO BNP-220s and no longer needed the 51-year-old cabinet, so Eric inquired about the school’s plan for the cabinet.
“They said if I wanted it, all I had to do was haul it away,” Eric shares. “I had made donations to the school of blast cabinet gloves and replacement view windows. I didn’t expect anything in return, but was pleasantly surprised after they offered me the cabinet.”
Eric plans on refurbishing the cabinet with his son, who is a mechanic at a Ford dealership, but who in his spare time also works on cars. “My son will use the cabinet to resurface and clean auto parts,” Eric explains. “The cabinet is in much better shape than it looks and won’t need much work … but did I mention it needs a makeover?”
