In this video we use a Vaniman Master Mobile Problast – Glass Etcher to create designs in a pint glass! Follow along and see what this glass etcher version of the popular portable blaster can do.
This is insanely cool if you are at all interested in natural history and gorgeous, gorgeous fossils.
Vaniman’s got a little HISTORY with fossils (see what we did there?) in the form of mobile sandblasters. Our portable, powerful little blasters have been taken all over the world and helped uncover numerous fossils.

Have you ever looked at a dental sandblaster and thought, “What else can I do with this thing?” Here at Vaniman, we know the answer to this question to be, “a lot.” In fact, micro sandblasters are used in more industries than you think.
We compare orthodontic sandblasters to intraoral sandblasters or microetchers, to see which one is ideal for surface prep and adhesive removal. Dental Microetchers Walk into any orthodontic lab or office and you shouldn’t be surprised to find an intraoral microetcher. It’s portable, decent on surface prep, and autoclavable for intraoral use making it a useful tool […]
How to choose a micro sandblaster for abrasive metal finishing. Micro-abrasive sandblasters are preferred for metal finishing and surfacing applications over other post-processing methods because they are more precise, accurate, and customizable. This is accomplished by testing different blasting materials (size and type), blasting tips, and air pressures to get the desired results. Once the […]
As an Arts & Crafts teacher at Brown Ledge Summer Camp in Vermont, I am always on the lookout for new methods for campers to create media. Once I saw David Schulte’s glass etching blog on the Vaniman website I was immediately intrigued, but had several reservations:
Glass etching is a form of art that removes the surface layer of glass, or mirror, leaving behind a cloudy finish. There are many ways to etch glass, but only a micro abrasive sand blaster can produce the amount of detail and true depth as seen in the pictures above.
This guide will help you use abrasive blasting to remove coatings from PCB’s and circuit boards.
