        You're likely to find even more if you spell it "silhouette"

                  Sure... thats easy. You see those TU felleers over in Austin sit around and sip tea all day, and their girlie friends keep saying "thats niiice" like they do up in SMU. But us Aggies are tough farmers. I bet you didn't know how TU's little cow BEVO got his name.. Some Ags branded 13 to 0 on his rump and the sips overbranded it BEVO (probably spelled wrong). But, I am an old Aggie so I don't keep up with that stuff much any more... But now lets get back to welding before we steal the thread..

                      Jim, I knew an old vet here in Abilene (almost like a father to my dad) that said that he helped make the 13-0 brand. I really think that he was telling the truth since he was at A&M in the teens. He was very interesting to hear talk about the "college" as it was called back then.

                        Not everyone knows that it was originally named "Agricultural & Mechanical College of Texas," that's where the A&M came from. In 1963, the agricultural and mechanical was dropped and the name officially became "A&M." Under the new designation the A&M did not signify "agricultural and mechanical" but was regarded as symbolic. The new name reflected the "diversified and expanded character of the institution."

                          7000 students and if you were not a vet or a graduate student, you were in the Corp ..
                          Oh well, the days of 'Shoot the bullneck" are long gone I suspect..

                            Here you go, what you are looking for is clip art books or cd's also. As any line drawing can be used for a pattern. Just fill in the centers. http://store.doverpublications.com/ they have some great stuff. When making the patterns don't discount making cuts in side the finished item as contrast or for interest.

                            There was a guy in the Farm show magazine, that makes and sells the farm/ranch style sillywhets as some call them. He uses the oldest form for people. By using the brown paper on a roll, he has a person lay down and he traces their outline.

                            You can use the old sign painters trick of an overhead projector, and transparencies printed on an inkjet printer. You can adjust the size of the pattern. There is a little distortion but it is more noticeable in lettering from the lens curve.
                            glen, been there, done that and probably broke it!If you aren't on the edge. You'r taking up to much room
