My dog "Doc" (named for Doc Holiday) barks at horses on TV-- what's up with that?

I had one that only barked at cows on the toob, she'd run behind the TV and growl, coming back with her hackles up. didn't pay attention at the TV at all other than that.

Grumm, that's a nice cabinet. Luckily it won't be going out on loan.  :-D I like the viewer.  Mine's a toy compared and because of it's size the blow back blasts the screen too. I don't do much blasting but if I have to I can use my mate's one.

I was going to buy a pressure blast cabinet from a friend of mine who buys every piece of abrasive blasting equipment that comes up on the market.
Then he found this one very cheap, and sold it on to me. It needs some work, however it's well made and it came with about 20 spare ceramic nozzles and full of garnet

Yep
I was thinking that I would just add a second compressor to what I have on a different circuit
I've got 240 volts at 80 amps coming in from the street and 480 volts at 10 amps form the roof if it's sunny enough.
And it came with a selection of ceramic nozzles down to about 1/8th

On another note, all sorts of stuff turns up at mt work

It'll be yellow, probably hiding after seeing the treatment the spray guns got..

.............my hand held sand blaster :roll: :roll:



My grandfather used to letter headstones.

I've seen a sandblaster.

Zendex makes a nice pneumatic ear wax remover.

As you seem to be confusing the two, perhaps your sandblaster is in the medicine chest?
