    I just wondered how many shops here are into dimensional signmaking, especially in HDU, and moresop sandblasting than routing.

    I enclose a few pics of my set-up.

    and here are a couple more

    The weather is cold here now….I think we are level with the Orkneys here in Stockholm! and we are only a third of the way up the country.

    I have to go to bed now….I am exhausted….seem to haven gotten alittle carried away here tonight. I will go into more details about my sandblasting tomorrow.

    Henry, you look more like a shipyard worker than a signmaker with that set up !!!!
    Seriously do you get asked if you do traditional sandblasting because of the equipment you have?
