Drawings.
1. All drawings I downloaded had the same scale except 4 pieces.

The right scale
a.jpga1 (1).jpga1 (2).jpga1 (3).jpga1 (4).jpga1 (5).jpga1 (6).jpg

Wrong scale
b (0).jpgb (1).jpgb (2).jpg

Pattern ready for sawing in my garage.

Finally, I would say that now all drawings are correct after they were corrected by DONNIE and MIKE.
Thanks to everyone who folow, and thanks for all the help so far.

Thanks for all the nice feedback.

TEST OF GLUE

Thanks for the great tips from SOS members.
I only found one brand here in norway 3M but not the same type.
Tips (1).jpgTips (2).JPGTips (3).jpg

PRITT paper glue and 3M spray glue.
The material is birch for both, the front and rear frame.

Then just try to see how well the pattern are attatch to the wood.

A little scraping with a sharp knife blade and the winner is the PRITT, bekase the pattern sitts well placed at the edges and is easy to scratch,
does not leave any residue, something 3M did not.
GET is also the cheapest about 2 DOLLAR.

For mounting the parts I will try CASCOL INDOOR which several of my Norwegian model building friends use.
Later we get an answer to that.

Jiig

First, the control of the revised drawing is measured.

Assembly.

Note that the top plate is as thick as the bottom plate, but from the bottom plate to the top is high correct, I have to adjust some cuts for frames
as they come.

Some parts for further customization.

Thanks JIM, I'm a little unsure of black stain on holly but with finer grade on sandpaper and a layer of good wood oil,
I stand a little bit stuck now when my proxxon thickener is sent to repair,
now I'm going to make a test frame of birch that I've already cut out,
That's the next thing I want to show in my log

Sample frame Birch
Garage: Production of frame parts and mounting plate- pressure plate.
aa (1).jpgaa (2).jpgaa (3).jpgaa (4).jpgaa (5).jpgaa (6).jpgaa (7).jpg

Indoors: No glass plate but transparent film, 10-min glue,
so I use clamps without separating the frame from the film, this was of great help.

Garage: Sanding of test frame and spreadderbar.
aa (15).jpgaa (16).jpg

Indoors: Testing frame and jig. here I have to adjust to get everything in line.

Next will be testing of different types of bolts, wooden nails? - waiting for the drawingplate in the mail,
try out some tip as told by Doc Blake who also tip on double-sided tape.
