According to Olaf Goubitz 1991 “Short instructions for making the reconstruction of a shoe from archaeological sources” (emailed off-list) you don’t need anything as complicated as a last. All you need is a “sewing support”, which in the drawing looks like nothing more complicated than a shoe outline cut out of a plank with a jigsaw, nailed to a stand made of bits of scrap wood. Wayne Robinson used it for his last pair of 17thC latchet shoes and said it worked a treat.
Anybody know how to cut’n’paste a drawing out of a PDF?

Open the page on PDF. Click CTRL and Print SysRq at the same time(or printscreen, which ever you have on you keyboard).
Open a paint program.
Press Ctrl and V and it will paste it for you. Then you can clip it and save it wherever you wish.
Regards.
Tom.
