[BKARTS] Making brass gouges

In case there's an easier way what I am trying to gold stamp is the
Canadian Anglican symbol on some missals. The cross on the one I
repairing is made up of nearly identical arcs although nowadays it seems
to be like this: See http://abcpublishing.com/books/covers/0919891276_lg.jpg
