10 January 2008

Yesterday…

* I went to a blast media company and felt their grits. I’m still holding out for a personal visit to a place in New Jersey at Easter; hopefully they will have the mineral emery in a 120/240 grit in quantities smaller than 2,000 pounds.
* I had a pounding headache in the evening because the weather was changing, so I took Tylenol and Advil and went to bed.

  1. are you looking to make emery pincushions?

  2. That’s the plan. I just refuse to pay inflated rates for a substance that should cost $80-100 per 55 pound sack. Needlework stores carry emery or aluminum oxide, but in such small quantities and at such high prices that I’m researching alternative sources. $4 per 1.5 ounces is ridiculous.
