    Graham,
    With PSP you may need to check the page set up and see what the image size and margins are set to.

    The photocopier enlarges through optics. There is no such a thing as a perfect lens so there sill be some distortions of the 61%.

    The paint and draw programs enlarge mathematically, and as long as the program is written correctly, then the output would be closer to 61%

    If you photocopy sheets that are larger than the copier and paste the sections together you will notice that the lines can be off slightly due to distortions in the lens. If you print multiple pages off on a printer and tape them together the lines will join better.

    Hope this helps.

    I do know why they call pants a pair but I can leave that answer till we meet on the other side

    That conundrum is right up there with, "Why do they call a pair of pants a "pair" of pants? There is only one. Perhaps we will learn the anwser to both when we get to the other side.

    My many years on this earth has taught me that the only 5 minutes job is writing a check to have someone else do the work. I also learned that Murphy was an optimist. You took on an ambitious project and stuff will happen. It will be great when you are done. The good news is you are retired so no...

    The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...

    Great job on a difficult pattern. When I want to add color to BB I usually stain the BB before cutting.
