    I measured the output pressure of the Wazer. It is about 3850 PSI. There are pressure washers that have higher output, but perhaps not electric ones which is kind of an important part of the convenience factor of this product. I measured abrasive flow at 0.27 lbs/min. Not too economical given the cutting speeds. Looking at the amount of particle destruction I found that about 85% of the used abrasive has particle sizes roughly equivalent to new abrasive. If cutting metal or stone I wouldn't worry too much about those particles from the kerf causing issues with cutting performance. (If you were worried about that, this isn't the product for you anyway, IMO.)

    As far as used abrasive having rounded off corners...assuming that is even a real thing (and there may be some particles that come out sharper than they were originally if they were shattered during use) I doubt you'd see an effect at these pressures. It might vary slightly depending on the material being cut as well. But I've never tried to quantify that effect.

    You could probably just put the used abrasive into some pans or something and let it dry out especially if you're a hobbyist and aren't planning to go into production with this thing.

    I suspect the consumable wear must be pretty minimal at these pressures so that's a plus.

    Omax Now have a personal waterjet called the Protomax they are super accurate, with bed size of 12"x12" and can cut up to 1"
