Applying the rubber mask. Securing the rubber mask.
Sheldon Sveinson had to ensure the accurate placement of the masks to maintain the proper alignment of the elements. It was important to ensure that the mask securely covered all areas that were to remain polished as the force of the sand striking the granite was great.

Checking the masks. Here Sheldon is checking the granite tiles that have had the rubber masks applied before they go outside to be sandblasted.

The two tiles shown here are placed together to make a single icon tile on the dial plate.

A close look at sandblasting. These photos show the set up for sandblasting the granite tiles. A diesel compressor is used to power the unit.
