Last time we left off in our tube roller project. I had just finished sand blasting off the coat on each piece. Now that I have entered my senior year of high school it is time to start working again. I have brand new classmates. Some are familiar faces some are new. My new team consist of some of the best people I come to know. My cousin George who is amazing on the computer and in the shop. And a close friend Xitlaly "laly" who is the fastest learner I know. As of the moment they are gaining their Welding skills so the machine can come out perfect.

From there we needed help to actually get the parts cut out for us. So our very good friend, Evan Favaro owner and founder of Speakeasy Motors,
This is what we have received. Yes I might not look pretty at first but that is because it has a thin paint over it to project it during the process. Now at the moment we finished filing off any hazardous edges.
After filing we in the process of sand blasting. What is sand blasting? Sand blasting is used to take off any paint on metal surfaces using tiny special cut pieces of glass.
You can see the difference in the metal. The lighter grey is what has been sand blasted while the darker has not.
