They work great.
Another method is to scan the image into your computer and adjust the image size and print. Fast and accurate.

I have one but never got around to using it. Maybe someday, but not on the bucket list ;-)

That’s a pretty nice machine. They have actually been around for many years. I have always use the old time grid system. It involves using two different size grids. Transfer your original outline to the first one (say: 1” squares). Make the second grid according to the relative size of the new piece. ( if you want the new piece 1/2 size, then draw a grid of 1/2” squares). Then, by eye, put tick marks on the sides of corresponding 1/2” squares and then connect the ticks. Easier to do than explain.

That they are AlaskaGuy and going up or down 10 times the original size is pretty good also.

I saw this number of times, some many many years ago. There all were little different and looked cool. However one feature that was the most common for all of them is that nobody ever actually used them.
