      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.

                  Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                  a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                  Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                  They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                  Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                  Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                  I found this information on fuses in general.

                  Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
