Whatta 'Blast'

Having [and running] your own business is not an easy thing to do. I don't even have one and I feel it must be hard! Ha! That's because I'm married to someone who has a small business that's been running for more than 6 years now. Every little pinch his business feels, we feel it here at home as well. And there are a lot of pinches I can tell you! It is a very small business, with just him and his partner. They can only afford to pay themselves to stay afloat. Of course the economy has a lot to do with that as well.

Anyway, in the years that they've been in business, they've been able to buy the machines they need for their day to day operations. They still have a few pieces of equipment they need to buy but they're surviving with what they have. One piece of equipment they don't have yet is blasting equipment, but they have started looking for [dry ice blasting equipment for sale] recently. Blasting is very important for their finished product and they were only able to survive this long without blasting equipment because they know somebody who owns a shop that does that. But hubby thinks that it's time for them to get their own equipment since they're getting more orders now. They're also considering dry ice blasting rental as an option as well, but they're leaning more towards buying their own equipment for now if they can afford it.

This is their busy season so most of their time is spent in the shop building the bowls. So, I'm doing my share in helping them find dry ice blasting equipment by doing an online search. Hubby has asked me to do that type of thing in the past and this time is no different. All I have to do is find different places that sell the items they need and then they make the decision themselves on what, when or where to buy it. I found quite a few sites that offer the equipment they need. I found this in one of the sites and it actually looks promising...to me that is...because it's not very bulky!


But the final decision is still up to them of course. If you need some of these products, all you have to do is visit their site and ask...and that's exactly what I'll tell my boss...err, the husband.
