Tennessee Sand Carvers? - last post by Cave-In

Please read the forums and learn all you can about the equipment you'll need to do this safely. Some sites will try to sell you on big booths that you may not need for many years if ever and they cost so much. Before you invest your money read and see what can be done for a fraction of the cost of the big units.

I have seen far too many members buy a big units and then find out after reading what some of our members have set up to sandcarve and that they could have done the same thing for thousands less than they paid for equipment that they didn't really need.

Remember, you can always upgrade to a larger system once you know you'll need it. We are NOT about selling you anything.

We hope you enjoy both your sandcarving and this forum. Chuck
