    Installing frost with lettering

    @Bham Bubbling happens most often when removing premask too early or a bit too much slip in your slip slowing the bond to the glass. The wait for the film to bond to the glass better than the film to premask bond is the hardest part to learn. SOOOO glad for smart phones now!!! When I would do a one off I'd often wait 10-15 or more mins before a test tug on the premask to see how its sticking. 3M has at multiple levels of tack in their premask offerings. SCPM -3 (low) SCPM -2(medium) and SCPM 53 (high) There is also SCPM 44x also a medium tack .

    Installing frost with lettering

    Not sure what premask you are using. One of the reasons the centers "float away " or get places they do not belong can be a combo of light tack premask or simply taking to long to lock them to the glass. When they get wet they want to let go of the premask. With "itty bittys" we will often would use a higher tack premask on a large panel with partial graphic like what you are describing. If you are hesitant yes use 2 men for the install. In any case be quick with targeting and lock down the cut area first taking care at the edges of the premask . ( the step to no premask can hold slip if you don't work perpendicular to the edges) then work above the cut area with wider and wider horizontal passes with hard card with the intention of keeping any slip above the cut area from getting down to the "logo" or text. Our guys use the 6" Silver Lidco hard card for anything premasked then use any favorite 6" slip removal squeegee for the rest. I should add that it takes some experience to learn how long to wait for premask removal afterwards. Too much slip in your slip or too short a wait can result in pulling itty bittys away and losing them. This can result in learning through necessity to hand cut by tracing replica itty bittys on the liner which hopefully is still clean and you have scraps.

    Wasn't repoed but my friends mom had a yellow Chevette/Acadian . She came out after work and got in "her " car and drove a way. Then she noticed the smoke odour (different than her smokes I guess) and started looking around. NOT her car @#$@#$#@ Drove back to work parked in a waaay different spot and found her real car WHEW.. The "other" car was not there the next day so all was good!

    When I was in Public school in the '70's Hostess used our school to test potato chip flavours. Kind of glad Orange and Grape flavour potato chips did not survive. Now if only we can convince Doritos to put the "Limited Edition "Late Night Nacho flavor on the permanent list. I've eaten probably 20 large bags of them and cant find more! To put this in perspective...I would maybe eat 3 or 4 snack size bags a year until I had these. Damn they are good!

    Google says there was a Patent filed in 1919 approved in 1921. Its not clear if one was ever built. I'm going to guess that keeping the full blade heated would be problematic resulting in buildup much like what is shown in the jet powered melter vid. https://patents.google.com/patent/US1376741A/en
