Scaling sketch from STL model to new sketch.

So, I have this kinematic model that I downloaded and I want to make my own model from it but, when I orient the model to the front face and trace the outline in order to copy it over to my new sketch it becomes HUGE. The units I am using in my sketch are "IPS" but, the units used in the model are "meter, pound, second" which is bizarre to start with but, that notwithstanding, I would like to scale it down to a more manageable scale because when I trace, copy, switch to my sketch and paste it is un-manageably large.

I am attempting this one drawing at a time and, If I have to go in and adjust all the measurements.

I know that my inexperience is showing but I would really like to be able to figure this out.


Thanks folks!
