I have several Badger airbrushes but I haven't used one of these blasters. Badger stuff is well-made but I'd avoid using those cans of propellant - VERY expensive! If you have a compressor and you do buy one of these I'd be interested to know how you get on with it.

these are good for general coverage, but no good for detail work.

If you are going to use one BEWARE having sandblasted quite a few things in the past from car components to a 43ft yacht BEWARE.The dust that these little guns can create is tremendous,the flying grit goes EVERYWHERE.
If you do buy one build yourself a cabinet,and for goodness sake wear EYE protection and I dont just mean ordinarry glasses but PROPER gogles and leather gloves and last but not least a PROPER Dust mask,as it will be horroble dust that will be produced from the reaction or the grit particles versus any part that is to be cleaned

"would these handle the glass beads?"

would be less destructive to lungs and surfaces than oxide dust
