Zenche, various hardware stores that sell sandblasting supplies will have it. Check to see if there is a Tractor Supply close to you, they definitely sell it and they are in Illinois.

Blain's Farm and Fleet has Black Diamond blasting sand... Wish i knew 4 mos ago when I setup my tank :-) but there is always a re-scape hehehe... There a few within a hour or 2 of the suburbs it is definitively not close but not too bad.

If you are going to the next GCCA swap I can pick you some up and bring to you at cost.

PM me if you are interested.

I need some as well and found there is a Tractor Supply in Carpentersville and one off of 94 by Michigan City. I won't really be near either of those any time soon.....
