Impact Engraving: Creating fantastic etched images onto memorials isn't as hard as you think it is. We spent ages trying to find a mason proof machine capable of producing reliable good quality images. Including the option of having someone else doing your artwork, a lot of the pitfalls associated with laser machines are addressed by the Sprint Diamond Etching Machine. More details can be found on the Etching Video page, including information on how you too can produce fantastic designs without having to be a photoshop whizz. 

The Blast Shop is proud to supply Goldmann sandblasting equipment, their machines have been the work horses producing our own gravestones in Manchester for over 30 years. Goldmann has recently launched the Goldmann Star-1 dustless sandblaster. The machine is an entry level dustless sandblaster designed for the smaller mason. It uses many of the same parts as the Goldmann Duplo mobile sandblaster but is designed for use in a workshop environment. Grit control is via a pneumatic control valve, extraction is provided by a powerful extraction motor which has an automatic bag shaker built in removing the need to shake the bags manually. More details on the Goldmann Star-1 dustless sandblaster. Details on the rest of the Goldmann range of sandblasters can be found on our Goldmann machinery page.


We've been using our dustless machine since 1985 and whilst it doesn't do as much work as our automatic cabinet it is still in use every day doing grave numbers and our logo on each memorial.
