  • Some military advice

    Scrollers,
    I need some input from the present/retired military members. I've finally got the pattern done for my pastor's son who went into the marines. In the spce at the bottom right corner I'd like to put his name and something, but I'm not sure what that 'something' should be. I was thinking of:

    name
    rank (at time of picture)
    USMC

    Do any of you who've been in the service have any ideas as to what would be meaningful? Also, how do you think it would best look. Jeff (workin with wood) suggested an engraved plate. I could go with that, or scroll it in depending on how much was there (translate-how small the print needs to be). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Marine Corps Motto....Semper Fi (Always Faithful). That would fit nicely and be appropriate.
    If it don't fit, don't force it....get a bigger hammer!!

      You did a fine job on his portrait Bruce! As Neal pointed out Semper Fi would be a perfect addition.

        have to agree with what the others have posted he is a Marine so "Semper Fidelis" would fit nicely

              Thanx for the great idea. Now . . .
              do I use "Semper Fi" or "Semper Fidelis"?
              Sounds picky, but not being a Marine I don't want to commit an unpardonable sin

                I'll go back and try a light emboss, my main intent here was to stand at the other side of the room and watch the pressure gauge from a distance, and see if it would go full force without leaks, so pressing through a 2/4 wasn't really the plan. A pin size leak at 10,000 psi is a very very dangerous...

                Glad you got repaired and I am intrigued by the embossing idea.

                So, before I traveled to a larger town to find a place that could help me with my hydraulic hose connection, I took the advice of one of the members here and called around to a few auto-parts stores. The stores I called didn't do that kind of thing, however they directed me to a store here in town that...

                The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.

                Couldn't agree more Rolf. The helmet has been a game changer for me.
