      Although the letters seem a little misplaced, I too think you done good. What is that glittery background you used? I like it, and can think of a couple projects I have here that would really look good with that backing. and a note to your son from me... for protecting my country and my freedom! Dale

            Hi Jerry,

            I know your son will like it! For those of you looking for that Metal Flake backing. If you have a Hobby Lobby Store in your area, they have something like it for about $2 each for a 12"X12" sheet in several colors.

              If that background is 'paper -ish', you might consider what will happen when moisture hits it. An alternative would be Blue Mirror Acrylic.

                GF, I think you forgot the CH in front of the AIR. Just kidding ya', I tell my retired Air Force Dad that line all the time. I think you did good and he will be mighty proud to have it. I thought of puling the plug myself as my 20 year mark is in May but I am going to be a super lifer and stay until 30 if they let me.

                Once again, good work, and congrats to your boy for making it through the gaunlet.

                  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...

                  That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                  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.
