Hit wine while etching -- how?

Postby jhenryw49 » May 28th, 2015, 7:11 am

MOTHERS DAY 2015 041.JPG
While doing a order I was blasting bottles, going along now this wine is $2.99 a bottles. I did not think that the bottle glass would be cheap too. well yes! I was going along and and wine came out, never ever have I did this before, I was bull*&^% about it. replaced the bottle went on, being cautious on the others.
so I saved it to cut it open find out what I did wrong. On cutting open the bottle, I found that the glass was not even all around it went from a 1/16 down to thin in places -(picture Not that good) so I etched on the thinnest part of this cheap bottle. so if you do cheap wine Trader Joe's ( wine might be good) the bottles are cheap too so be careful.

Oh my ... that would make me a bit cranky. Wine in my grit ... man, I have enough issues trying to keep moisture out of my grit as it is!

Who would have known these bottles were thinner in spots. YIKES! How is one to know which bottles get surface etched only.

Thanks for the heads up.

Hi No grit got wet no pressure in the wine bottle. The wine was filling in the etching in the resist slowly.

Yikes! I had reservations etching a wine/sparkling cider bottle the other day, but I did it and it did not explode... Thanks for the info on TJ's wines!

Mark-
Stay away from "Sparkling" type bottles! Any bottle with pressure inside opens you up to some serious liability issues. I have been known to do them, only under the caveat that I can "depressurize" them, meaning that the contents are no longer acceptable for consumption. Even beer bottles are dangerous. Today's litigious society is hunting for this type of thing, and defending your motives in court is not worth the risk.

Thanks for the heads-up Jess. I used the HF air eraser and it only did a surface etch. Going forward I will keep myself safe by not doing pressurized bottles.

Jess, I posted a picture of what I did, got any thoughts or suggestions... I do not plan to do any type of sparkling bottles anymore (unless empty).

Just a repeat of the quoted comment. IMHO, it's not worth the risk.
