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.

this is a pic that a friend sent me to see if i could cut it out... I use torchmate cad, but the scanning feature of this software does not like this.just a bunch of squiggly lines

I'm trying to understand what you're after. Just the top and bottom arches with text or the whole thing?

I will take that advice, knowing that you use tm cad ad have those results. most things trace pretty good but when I try to trace patches and such the lines are all over the place.

That came out wrong. I meant that I just practice to get to where I can use the program to do almost anything I need to.
I wasn't advising you to do anything, that is up to you.
