Returning to Sandblasting after a long break.

Postby BoomerangPete » March 17th, 2015, 5:52 pm

Salutations, I live in Australia and as far as I can see there is only one other member listed with this forum from the same place. I have been involved with glass sandblasting at a very modest level for several years. I was, and remain at the novice level. A couple of years ago I began losing my eyesight to the degree that I could not continue working in glass. The wonders of modern medicine have now substantially rectified my problem, hence my desire to start again. Previously I was a member of the Cutting Edge forum on which I was quite dependent. I recently discovered that the site is now defunct. As I need all the information and advice I can get I searched the Internet for alternatives without success. Subsequently I contacted fabulous Butch Young who I have had dealings with in the past and she gave me the link to this site. Having browsed the overall content I have to say I am delighted with it and look forward to taking advantage of everything it has to offer.

Welcome Pete

There are a bunch of folks here that used to frequent CES. Glad you got your health taken care of. It really sucks to have to stop doing things you loved to do.

I had to give up motocross due to a bad back and had been racing for 25 years.

There is a great group of folks here willing to help.

:B:
