@Butrflynet,
Im gonna have to watch. I have several chunks of a 450 year old oak that was toppled in a storm about 6 yeras ago. It was in thetown of Oxford Pa and I bought a big log with a donation to the church upon whose land the tree resided.
Id like to try some turning. Ive already had cut several 1.25" bioards for some M&T benches.

Wheres STugotz??

have you ever tried to master this technique?
My left hand is kinda boogered up and I cant use it except as a tool rest. I tried chip carving and its work Im not poroud of. I need to address making a better hold down. I do ok carving with a Foredom cutter and a little "chain saw" gizmo for my angle grinder. Two handed work where some dexterity is required from the secondary hand is kinda tough. But Ill get it . I can hold a chisle and use a mallet to cut relief lettering for signs and like that. Qll chisel work is a function of a tools sharpness. I would stop after even 10 minutes of chisel work and re sharpen a tool if I were working on something hard

@Stugotz,
I want to believe it. It is amazing . Ive seen those "bat suits" on a Discovery show once. They were testing the glide of the suit before the tester deployed his chute.

How did the guy decide on that path ?

@farmerman,
perhaps he had flown the course in a helicopter first? to map out a flight area

@farmerman,
Here's his website.

http://jebcorliss.net/

There are many more videos of his bat suit flights all over the world. According to his blog, he's currently in South Africa preparing for another flight. Check out previous flight photos on his blog.

Check out his Facebook page too. More photos there.

I think he must be a modern day version of Evel Knievel.

Here's his youtube channel:

Here's the Wiki on him:

@Butrflynet,
There was aguy who built a turbojet suit and was shown flying his body at sub MAch speed over France somewhere. It too was cool. I say, if these guys totally crash and burn, they at least had the good sense to mike themselves and install helmet cams. We can then marvel and honor their memories on FB.

Ask me if Id do that ****?

FM, take a look at this guys wood.
I have spoken with him a few times, and I think he must use some kind of vaccume system to have his stains penetrate the woods that he auctions off.
He comes up with some weird colors but his items sell like hot cakes.

He works with burl woods and has a system that he has created over the years to achieve this look.

Interesting

@Stugotz,
do you know whether he uses amino dyes (mixol makes some) . Ive often used Feibing leather dyes (They are essentially amino based dyes) They change color if you add water v alcohol or acetone.
You can get blues and other neat tints. If you paint em up and experiment with the times then you can wipe off the residue and lightly sand the surface, the dye will stay with more absorbent rings .
I guess you could use a vacuum system but that might send the dye deeper.

@Stugotz,
I cant invest in stuff that I deal in professionally. Contractual agreements and all. The market is really run by a relatively few real players and theyve agreed on certain rules of order.
Since REE's all seem to come from a few basic sources (including pre-extracted tin slags and other metal slags) its hard to distinguish a "new" emplacement method.
