  • Holy Batman - Blue Angels overhead

    So there I was under my tent sanding when I heard in the distrance jet engines. Knowing the blue angels are in Baltimore for the Sailabration of the War of 1812 & the Star Spangled Banner, I stepped from under the tent and one Blue Angel flew by upside down with 2 behind him. Right over the house!!! A few minutes later 3 more flew over. Then they were flying in the area for about 1 hour practicing. Around 3ish, I heard the engines again and before I could get the camera all 6 flew over in formation!!! Quite a site indeed! They will be practicing again tomorrow and the show is 1-4 Sat & Sun. The show will be over the Patapsco River at the spot the Star Spangled Banner was written. As the crow flies, I am about 2 miles from that. Don't think much will be getting done here tomorrow. I had the best "seat in the office" today!! Will try to get pics to post.

        Hey, you're lucky to see them. I only live 60 miles from where they train in El Centro, California. I don't get over there much to see them though. They are really quite a team. We had the Air Force Thunderbirds here for our annual Air Show in March. They are really interesting to watch. We have the Air Show here in Yuma, at the Marine Air Station. Hope you can watch them over the weekend, Betty. Enjoy the Show

            That is way cool. When I was stationed in AZ, we had them on the base for a while as the weather was bad where they trained in FL. They didn't make many friends as they practiced early due to the heat and so we all got awakened by them on the flight line. Also, the pilots were all provided a new convertible by local car dealers to drive while they were there.

                Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
