First don't wait for the girl with hot pant in Gorilla handler ad to help you moved plywood ... after 30 years I never saw her around when I have plywood, drywall sheet or cast iron radiator to move around.

In all honesty, they're really not that bad, and Rob's kits have obviously been working VERY well, but the situation bothered me anyway. Basically, at some point, the entire artwork was scaled a few thousandths off. Here's a pic:
You can see the dimension box in the top left showing that the part is oddly sized (it should be 13.5x7.75, not whatever fractionally-too-small dimension it is). My guess is that this all happened at some early stage DXF conversion, perhaps when GaryK started his work on the project. In any case, it had to be corrected. So I spent much of the day chasing down problems in the artwork and correcting them. I also corrected most or all of the problems listed in my earlier video. Unfortunately for me, that also means reprogramming most/all of the toolpaths to cut another copy. It also means spending another $50 on plywood.
I'm going to stay up late tonight programming the toolpaths for this new revision. I'll try to cut a scanner tomorrow night after work.
