  3. the pattern is his intellectual property so make sure it is spelled out clearly that you can sell and resell said pattern
  4. According to US Law if you purchase a pattern you can make and sell items made with that pattern..... you can NOT sell or distribute the pattern
  5. you can buy them on etsy and eBay or the website
  6. steel rule is typically inset into a wood base that has had the pattern cut in... depending on complexity you can bend it and screw the sides into a wooden shape such as a rectangle. to bend the shape you use a bender... small newer types are out there cheap whereas a commercial one will cost you 1000 at a shop auction or on eBay
