Depends on what your doing. At the shop we keep regular concrete sand in the outside blaster, it has to be screened first but for 4 bucks a bag... cant beat it.

Tractor Supply has glass beads... bout 50 bucks for a bag..great for blast cabinets

I wonderd about reguler fine sand [ Ill be doing frame and under cab ] Dont know how sand would effect sheet metal thats going to get reguler paint, may put fine lines in that primer wont fill. I would say a homemade screen sifter would be easy to make, I guess a fine window screen would work . I've heard that the sand must be kept really dry. thanks

Yep Really Dry. if its been wet, baking it helps. I wouldnt use Sand or glass on regular sheet metal anyway. We send our stuff out and it gets blasted using plastic media. Plastic doesnt generate the heat that glass or sand does
