    I make patterns for everything," measure twice , cut once" You can use plain copy paper for patterns. The trick is to glue it on the material (wood ,plastic , steel or whatever) with school glue that your kids or grandkids use. The paper will stay thru the cutting process , but can be removed easily afterward.
  2. Me too....except I take it up a notch. I do my designs in Autocad, plot the images full-scale to paper, then spray-glue the paper images to the material.

    That's how I did the manifold for the Iron Duke. The material is aluminum and it was cut on a band saw.
