I remember drooling over them at the hardware stores but just couldn't bring myself to spend the $$'s.

I just used my old cheap compass (think it came from G.C. Murphy or maybe F.W. Woolworth) from elementary school which I still have to scribe along on a piece of paper or cardboard, then cut out the pattern. Course Patch with all that cheap Texas oil & gas you probably had a little more pocket money to make an extra trip or two to the Hardware. I had to wait for grocery shopping day.
