Stencil Questions for stone
TxVinyl posted a topic in General discussionHey guys, I'm trying my hand out at sandblasting some stone. I've got access to some basic sandblast equipment and plenty of stone to practice on. I'm using the Hartco 930. My question is how you guys apply the stencil. Do you just apply the stencil straight to the stone and then weed it once it's on there? Or do you weed the stencil like it was regular vinyl and then add transfer paper to get it onto the stone. The stones I'm using aren't smooth polished surfaces if that makes a difference. They are rough. The design I'm practicing with is just some basic shapes. No small detailed intricacies or letters or anything. I played with it and got my cutter to cut the stencil great. Any tips for the rest would be awesome. Thanks guys!
Newbie looking for advice
oneearthjc posted a topic in Pre-sale questionsI am looking to cut vinyl primarily for use in engraving rough granite. I purchased a used (probably 15 years old) Roland Camm1 CM24 a couple of years ago and just cannot figure out how to get my Mac to "talk" to it. So, I'm throwing in the towel and starting from scratch. I'd like to spend $1500 or less but could spend a little more if I would get a better bang for my buck. I will obviously need software too. If it makes sense for me to buy a used PC instead of using my Mac, I would be open to that. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
