Blast stencil pattern on acrylic
- Tape existing stencil to a piece of acrylic scrap. The stencil will only allow abrasion in the areas desired.
- Open the cabinet door.
- Place stencil/acrylic into sandblast cabinet
- After placing parts in the cabinet, make sure to secure the door. If the door is left open it will create a cloud of dust that should not be inhaled.
- Turn on the cabinet light and fan switch. The switch is located on the top left of the machine.
- Insert your arms into the gloves and position yourself for a clear view into the cabinet.
- Picking up the parts and gun, manually aim where the stencil doesn't cover the acrylic. Do not point the gun at your gloves or the window.
- Position your foot in the foot pedal mechanism. Once pedal is depressed sand will blast out of the gun.
- When finished, turn the machine off.
- Before removing parts, wait 5-10 mins for the dust in the cabinet to settle.
- Once you remove parts make sure to close cabinet door and power off the light and fan.
- Make sure the cabinet door is closed before stepping on the air activation pedal.
- Keep the activation pedal clear when loading the cabinet.
- After you are done using the blaster let the dust in the cabinet settle prior to opening the door.
- Inhaling the dust produced by the cabinet is bad for your lungs.
- Never point the nozzle towards your hand or the window in the cabinet.
