Re: Need some education.

I downloaded the file from here and it opens fine in Inkscape and I saved it from there in both DXF and SVG formats. It is about 6" tall and 8" wide.
The last one is from QCAD saved as R18 DXF format

Re: new toy Plate Roller

Yes sir pressed them in to the metal and bent it to make corner guards for the cart. I cut the star out then enlarged the star and cut the outer part to press the inner star into it. I did smooth out the edges so it had an easy transition with out tearing the metal. :) DSCN2457.JPG DSCN2450.JPG DSCN...

Re: Sprocket drawing program?

The post Gamelord attached works fine but if you are just cutting for gear shapes for a sign as shown I would use Inkscape as you can then save it in SVG or DXF and your ready to cut.

Re: Fathers Day - Dad's Garage Sign

Inkscape is a program that you can learn to edit files to change by removing or adding things you want. As above he remove the model A and installed a bike. you could remove Dad and put Joe's if you wanted to. Here is a simple example of what I mean.

SheetCam will allow to remove some things by changing them to different layer editing should be done with a drawing program.

Re: anybody want to take a stab at tracing?

Another poster had suggested laying paper over thing to trace then use a scanner to load it into your computer then use Inkscape trace to convert to a DXF or SVG file. If you do that you can scale it to what ever size you want.

Well the second video show how somebody did it, looks like a simple 4 jaw chuck which allows the square tube to rotate and cut on the edges. With that the main thing is having a THC that can follow.
