How to transfer design onto metal for piercing, sawing and filing?
What is the best way to transfer a design onto sheet metal for
piercing, sawing and filing?
Gluing a B&W paper pattern onto the metal with rubber cement works
well for simple things. But I find that as the complexity of the
design increases this becomes less and less satisfactory. The paper
can lift up, the image can become less clear with repeated handling,
and worst of all as the paper frays it becomes harder and harder to
tell if I’ve hit the line I was aiming for.
