On your info Jess, I stopped doing champagne a year ago, I get some questions, if I do them, I tell them the whole story, they understand. I have lost some business. but sleep better well almost better.

So with everyone cutting costs today be careful of what you blast. I am not sure how to tell if the glass is thick or thin on a bottle.

What about when blasting full bottles that could break and leak all over, putting down a small plastic tub so if it breaks only a tub full of whatever flying grit gets soaked and the glass lands in the tub? Lot better than the whole cabinet going down for cleanup.

I've done something similar with a large mirror that I blasted. I put down a towel in the bottom of the cabinet to rest the mirror on while I blasted it. It was a little messy to clean up, but I'd rather have that than having to repurchase a custom made mirror.
