A shot-peening assembly for dispelling shot onto a workpiece includes a discharging device for dispelling shot onto the workpiece. The shot-peening assembly also includes a reservoir for collecting the shot dispelled from the discharging device. The assembly further includes a transfer tube defining a fluid passageway between the reservoir and the discharging device for recirculating the shot from the reservoir back to the discharging device. A fluid nozzle of the assembly is interposed between the reservoir and the transfer tube for conveying the shot through the fluid passageway.
