@markbailey. Good to see you back on the forum Mark. Hope all is well with you.

@tej like Mat says and Mark suggests, make a master then a copy from that so if and when you hack into it you have a backup master.
@mattbeels you know me and my bandsaw / router skills, it's a 'kind of master' but one straight edge is utter balls because I cut too close on the band saw. Thankfully I used a complete straight edge to copy route all the actual straight edges onto the template.

Well done @cheesewhisk, as long as you got there in the end. Did you then make a backup, is that what’s in the photo?
Pratice on scrap...
Cheers @mattbeels yeah so for the master I used straight edges and cut close to the lines with the bandsaw then sanded the curves. Then I used that to make a copy but used a straight edge instead of the master to fix the edge. If you look at the photo of them stuck together you can see the X's X's I scribbled on to remind me that bit was wonky.
