    What kind of saw do you have? Are you converting from "pinned" to "no pin" blades? If yes, I will tell you that I had an old ryobi when I first started cutting and I got one of the conversion kits and while it worked like a champ it only made me want a new saw. So, while the kit may make you happy in the short run it might turn out to be more expensive than you think because you will start eying those more expensive saws. . . . . (I'm not telling you . . . I'm just saying)

        I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

        I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

        I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.
