I’ve been meaning to do this for the two I need to restore. Nice pictorial, and nice totes! Where did you get that blueprint from? I checked Lee Valley’s site but didn’t seem to find it.

I downloaded a bunch from the LV site. I found them through google images . Make sure to select ”none” for page scaling on the print prompt. Alot of the time this is set to ”reduce to printer margins
