I'm sure he'll have to rebuild his machine with an imperial tape measure before he can cut it! .... :S

Yes you were right but I found one lurking in the dust and managed to setup up the machine.

Probably would've been easier to convert it with the dxf file instead. I still need to tweak the start points and leadouts a little bit on that cut.

Thanks. Would you mind posting dxf file for it and then it can be scaled. I am having trouble with my vintage tape.

The black powder coated one is laser cut from when I made these years ago. Unfinished HR is today on my table. I think I can still dial it in just a bit better (still have to install my desiccant air dryer and motorguard filter, and I can run it at 30A settings for better definition.
