Re: Gloves for Cyclone 3824

A friend showed me her style, and talked to me about the fit, which will be much better in the hand. I'm just checking on the diameter of the part that fits onto the hole in the blast cabinet. http://www.kmstools.com/mod-u-blast-sandblasting-gloves-3618 Mod-U-Blast is a Canadian company, but I have ...

Re: Gloves for Cyclone 3824

Charlie, Usually I'm pretty good at finding items online, but not the gloves for some reason. THANK YOU for the links, very useful info! As Rick pointed out, the thinner material really helps feel the project, and handle it more carefully. One of the pairs you linked to looks very promising.

Re: Gloves for Cyclone 3824

Hi Rick, I should have said that I believe the suction feature of this style of unit needs the gloves to be more air tight. Before i cut off hands, when you turned the blaster on, the gloves came to life and shot out stiffly, so a little vacuum created in cabinet? After I cut the hands off, I did ru...

Gloves for Cyclone 3824

Hi all, my Cyclone came with gloves about the right size for The Hulk. I've been muddling along with them for much too long, and have had no luck finding a substitute online. Have checked personally in Lowe's and Home Depot, and online randomly, and specifically at Harbor Freight. No luck. I don't h...

those pens in the picture are the ones i have. for what i was doing, the wide one was too wide ... the stuff seemed to widen when fired, so the thinner line seemed preferable for what i was drawing. i am stubbornly sticking to my assertion that putting this stuff inside a conventional pen is not a g...

too viscous, i think.
and evaporates too quickly.
sounds like a cleaning nightmare.
the kemper pens come in fine and medium.

i only used thinfire for a short while, when i was having problems with large bubbles forming under my glass. i had the same experience of it tearing because of the glass moving. i used two sheets of it a few times, which worked. i only left a margin of about an inch around the perimeter of my piece...

terms need to be spelled out in an consignment agreement before goods are given to a store. it pays to drop into stores that have goods on consignment, and see how things are going. there has to be a reasonable time-frame within which sales are expected, or the goods must be returned. stores that ta...

i agree with nancy. whatever "burgundy" means, that range is achieved with cranberry as a base, and sometimes with BE gold/purple as the base, then one of these CBS colors, on clear: dark dark red, black cherry, or dark red. if you put a little overlay of neo-lavender on top, it will be a little mor...

pretty much in agreement with some of dennis brady's remarks. i've been at it for about 7 years, and have not worked a part-time job -- IMO it's not feasible to work full-time building a business, and go somewhere else during the day and spend time & energy on another enterprise. the first 2 years w...

buy dichro on clear, not black.
if you want black substrate, cut the base from black, and put dichroic on clear on top of the black.

i dont think about those things in the way you have described. i think about what's reasonable, what's happening in the marketplace where the store is, and i price accordingly. in my opinion, it's not possible to connect the dots between cost of glass, wear and tear on equipment, and the resulting v...

for my taste, i might like fewer elements. "Inspiration" is nicely made, and i can see you finished the top edge of that bowl. i like those soft colors, but maybe not the purple/mauve V area. overall, the piece reminds me of ethnic weaving. "Playgrounds" i think could lose a few things and benefit. ...
