It takes me 20 to 30 hours to reproduce an old plan like the Tomboy to CAD.
I used to think I was slow, but a couple guys confirmed that was about normal.

Starcad, thats a nice clean pdf, thanks for posting

Yep, your right in the ball park Rick. 20 to 30 is around the main. I can usually rough one out in a day or so, but if you add all the annotations, it seems time increases logarithmically. I have this design in the hopper but haven't really put any lines down yet. Just thinking of how to make it easy to cut and thinking out of the box with a laser cut.
