Blasting cabinet works

I got the blast cabinet working. Only had bicarbonate of soda to put in it. Tried it on a carb. Works ok, needs tapping at the bottom all the time to shake the media up (Bev with a hammer 😂). Got all the lines plumbed in. The one I bought to the gas bottle was way too thin, don’t think I even got 100PSI in the bottle. I definitely need a much bigger compressor and a vibratory motor to shake the media up.

Bye Bye Xin2

A bit of a sad day today. We had to put one of our cats down. He was 17 years old had hyperthyroid problems, kidney problems and had been steadily losing weight. Over the last week he stopped eating and was vomiting a lot and there was blood in it. He became very lethergic and struggled to do anything.
We agonised about what to do for a few days and Ange decided it was time to put him out of his misery.
We took him to the SPCA this morning. It’s the first time I have witnessed an animal being put to sleep and it was all very gentle and kind. Seemed really odd that I could see almost the exact moment that his life left him and his pupils dialated.
We hope he has gone to cat heaven.
