Thanks Patrick.

Yes, there's the 'ubiquitous' set of 3 (of Burmesters set of 28) which every schoolboy knows, and with which Burmester said it should be possible to draw any curve (disregarding scale, obviously) and for the Swiss link, which I think I turned up during my increasingly-annoying trawl of the net!

I forgot to mention the dressmaking application, but here's one template I found amusingly called -

 

Sew Easy.
Metric French Curve.
This ruler helps you alter patterns for a personal fit, including curves for neckline, armhole, sleeve cap, hipline, waistline and hemline (and bust line and any other 'irregular shape). Includes grading grid for sizing adjustments and adding seam allowances.

     

It hasn't let me cut and paste the pic. but it includes a straight edge.  There are others branded products.

Other diversions include the Paisley pattern which goes back to C.12 (or so) Turkey (and has less to do with the Scottish town than you'd think!)
