Perfect! Thanks Carsten! Just as I expected. The width is basically the same on them. Just slightly different curves.

I wonder if the wood is somehow made rotproof or just painted?
Any of the cloth or stuffing glued to the wood or is everything stapled to the wooden parts?

I was at my frame yesterday.
What do you need?
That is one freaking complicated hell of bows and levers.
So glad that I do not have to "make" one.
I made some pics.

As I felt that the hinges were too tall I decided today to cut off about 10mm off the base of them to drop the frame some at the hinge area…. :)
So I lined the halves up with the bolts and nuts until I get them welded on the frame.
