I have purchased your manual and got a lot of help from it, but I have questions about stencils for stone work and stencil filler.
I am using stencil filler to mount my stencils on the stone but then I find that the blaster wont cut through the glue that in on the stone.
It bounces off of the stencil filler just about like it does off of the stencil itself.
How do you get around this. Is there a good way to fasten the stencil to the stone without this glue or stencil filler.
Or is it that I dont have enough pressure? I am using a 20 gallon pressure pot with a gas compressor rated at 10 cfm at 100 lbs pressure.
I have just ordered 2 mm nozzles. I am now using 3.5 mm and am having problems keeping up the pressure.
I have seen videos of folks using something other than stencil filler, but I don’t know what it is that they are using.
Maybe you could help me out.
Any advice would be appreciated.
I typically etch glass more than I do sandcarving stone so I don’t use stencil filler.
I do know there are different types of stencil fillers with some that are lighter grade but not sure if that would help.
I typically heat up my stencil onto the rock with a heat gun so that it contours to the rock surface better and adheres better. But I don’t know if that would help for the thicker sandmasks that are typically used because I use a thinner vinyl sign material.
That air compressor sounds about right for the 2mm nozzle but the 3.5 mm nozzle might be too big for the compressor at that air pressure. You can check out this air compressor chart.
Sorry if I couldn’t help you further. Thank you for the purchase and let me know if you have any other questions.
