I went to the shop and started laying out .032 parts on the blanks that I had rough cut. I found it INCREDIBLY slow and tedious to mark up on the metal!
Except for the angle parts, most all my other parts have been made to date by making paper patterns first in my CAD program, printing them out, and pasting them on the metal. Then I just drill and cut directly to the lines and holes of the patterns.
After laying out two parts (one long and one short) directly on the metal, and spending nearly 1.5 hours doing it, I took all my drawings and headed upstairs to make patterns instead. MUCH FASTER AND MORE ACCURATE!
So of my 3.5 hours tonight, 2 hours was making patterns, but I made a LOT of patterns in a LOT shorter time.
