Thank you Bryan. You and I must be of a "certain age".

Nice drawing with a vintage flavour. A long time ago I used to deliver to a company that made the leather belting that was used on those lineshafts and things like drive takeoffs from traction engines. Apparently there is no substitute for the way in which leather has the right friction to move with the smooth pulleys.

When I was teaching myself AutoCAD I was lucky to acquire two volumes of the following:

Engineering Drawing with Worked Examples Volume 1 & 2 by Parker & Pickup

Still to be found on Amazon they contain a wealth of detail on engineering drawing. I practiced drawing the examples in the book many, many times in AutoCAD to improve my speed and drawing efficiency. I no longer have the books (I think I don't!) so can't try the examples in Sketchup.

If you do a Google search you can find loads of old technical drawing books online to work from. I find them useful for practicing modeling techniques as I did with this model.

Cool drawing, looks like a mount for a train grab rail.

Very nice! Great presentation.

The traditional ortho drawing reminded me of the discussion online that isometric drawings are passe and no one needs them with 3d modeling available. I just used SketchUp for a plumbing diagram, which went into CAD as an iso, for submittal to the city--thank you very much, but yes, ortho and iso works are still very relevant.
