Default Sand/Media blasting question.

I ran a media blasting cabinet for years, yer go. Problem is, it was operated off of an industrial compressor. We ran 90 pounds of pressure in the thing. Worked great

Now, I bought a small 40-pound capacity cabinet and I am running it off of a small 20-gallon compressor. At 100 psi, I can work for maybe a full minute before the thing kicks back on and I have to wait for the pressure to build up again.

Any suggestions on what size compressor would be good, better, best?

TIA

If you have a decent motor and pump; just add a larger tank for more volume.
