    Was looking at the wescott frame plans and just thought I would ask if anyone has used them and how accurate they are.

    The model A plans dont have outside of frame dimentions.

    Is there another place where i could get some better plans for the model A frame???

    The measurements for their 36-40 frame isn't very accurate, so I would have my doubts about any of the others.

    When I built my 33-4 frame jig, I took measurements from a straight original frame, a professionally boxed frame, and Wescott's drawing. There was often variation between the 3. If there was more than 1/8" difference, I discarded Wescott's numbers and went with the original frames.
     
  8. This might help.
