It can be quite easy to have a metal ruler slip and make you mis-cut! I hate it when that happens! Keep up the great work.
    Even better than cork is fine sandpaper glued to the underside of the ruler.

    I've switched to the spray glue on posterboard method. After making 2-3 wings, I got tired of printing, and my paper only plans were not very accurate.
