Hello and Intro-David -Upstate NY

Postby ddamico361 » June 22nd, 2015, 8:14 pm

Hello everyone. David Damico here. I have signed up to this site to learn and share about sandblasting for creative purposes. I am just building my system with a Husky, 60lb air compressor from HD, a 40 gal pressure pot from HF and, a small blasting cabinet from Tractor Supply. I also own a Titan vinyl cutter for masking purposes.

I am a graphic design instructor by trade, and enjoy barbershop harmony singing as a hobby. I plan on doing creative typographic projects with my equipment once it is set up.

Glad to be here.

David-
Welcome, and thank you for the introduction. This site was built specifically for folks such as yourself, and I hope you find it useful. I hope you will share some of your knowledge about graphic design, and hope you will find helpful information here also.
On another front, I have been the bass position on a few very minor groups. Never very good, but had a ball!
I hope you find our forum useful!

Thanks folks. It seems to be taking so long before I get started but I picked up so much of what I currently know from online sources rather than in person. I am hoping to have a proper voltage outlet installed soon to run the compressor. I'd upload an avatar but I guess I must be a member before I do so. I love that we are so diverse in our locations.

Oh, Jess, I have found that singing barbershop harmony is as much about the camaraderie and making others smile as it is about being the best. It just fills me!

David-
Love the chest rumble, and the audience reaction. I'm somewhat past it now, getting too old, and can no longer hold the chords that I once could, but when I can get together with some of the old pals, it still seems like yesterday. I really love Acapella, And Barbershop promotes it. I hope you continue to promote audiological Harmony, but here, I hope you will take advantage of the information collected to advance your skills as a sandblaster/carver. You will find, as a singer, you may impress someone today. As a blaster/carver, you will leave a lasting legacy, that will draw attention for many years into the future. Our craft creates heirlooms, (if properly made,) that will become a part of history. An image carved in glass, or any other solid material, will become the hieroglyphics of future generations, recording our lives for the future folks to laugh at. Or, for the folks spawned by us, to say, " My, what an innovative group they must have been!"


Regardless, I wish you good fortune, and look forward to seeing your progression.
Jess
