A&E AUGUST 2017 • 43 Sandcarving A much larger unit that needs to be towed by a vehicle. We use this type of compressor on large blasting jobs on construction sites and any on-site job where noise is not an issue. These engines are loud but deliver all the air one could want for any blasting job. at that pressure. If the tank is a 60- or 80-gallon tank, it doesn't much matter, because at a pressure of 40 pounds in carving, you will deplete the air of either tank in four to eight minutes. More about that next time when we consider air con- sumption and other important facts. © Ruth L Dobbins 2017 With over 35 years in the glass business, Ruth Dobbins offers experience in fused and cast glass, as well as in glass-etching techniques.
