If you don’t have Autocad, or one of the many clones, You will need an App like edrawings, available here to view the files. There are many others similar .dxf file readers on the web.
If you want to edit or print, a cheap App is Qcad, $39 USD.

Note: You will likely need to download the .dxf files to open them. I don’t think google will open them directly like it does for the excel files.

Sorry folks, I didn't realize that .dxf files would be such a problem.

PDF's for the tug are now in the google drive folder. They vary in scale to accommodate paper size limitations but the dimensions and so on are accurate.
In some cases you may have to zoom way in to read the text.

Started construction of my tug. Most parts are on order, some on their way. I noticed the mounting plate for the motor is in mm's and the rest in inches. No biggie to convert the dimensions.

It is in mm because the motor is metric. If you print out the motor mount plate 1:1 it is a template. You can center punch the holes and drill.

It came to my attention that the tug drawings omitted any info on how to mount the sprocket to the wheel. PDF attached. Not sure why the PDF attachment shows up as a black box but if you open it the drawing is there.
