  • 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 have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
