    If you enter the appropriate parameters in the PostScript template, it will print the weight of the finished article on the template...

    % foil parameters
    /thickness 0.15 def % thickness of foil (mm)
    /density 2.7 def % density of foil [Al=2.7, Ti=4.5]

    Boy, that is fugly...

    More importantly, I'd suggest that burner is way too big for that pot/cone setup.

    I can't get my head round this, either my paper tape is out (though it matches with a steal ruler i have) or the script ain't working for me
    DSC03355.JPG
    Every time i measure i get 410mm for cir, checked the script & i have 411mm writen down there as i thought i'd try it at that first for fit, but its still to small?
    Does anyone have a toaks 900 130mm dia they can measure for me?

    Wild guess, when you print the pdf, is it scaling it to fit the paper rather than printing full size?

    I've not got a Toaks pot to measure, but Pi x D on a 130mm pot is approx 410mm, so your numbers look sane on the face of it.

    @JimH no idea, but I doubt it as it was printed out over 3 sheets of A4 & the rest of it looks ok. Thought maybe i was lining the cut outs up wrong but counted the holes each side of the halfway line & they were good according to the first page of the pdf

    Think I've sussed it, my script has 20 holes top & 23 bottom but the first page of the pdf that i was going by to join the pieces together only has 19 top & 22 bottom. I thought it was a draft of the finished piece, is it not?
    edit: will try again tomorrow sticking the pieces together so they give the no. of holes I have in the script & wont even consider what i thought the halfway line to be as anything to see if that works. I think it will, cause it looks like its about that much out.
