Horns arc left on for fixings at the head and in. iron plugs driven in the feet of the jambs for fixing iu the stone sill. Commence with the plan, drawing the stile,s of the door first to the given dimensions. Construct the frame around these, drawing the sight lines first, in. within the edges of the door. Divide up the panel equally next the vertical section at a convenient distance from the boundary of the elevation, the position of which can be seen in the plan. Hero, first draw in height...

Setting Out Rods Joinery

Setting Out Brick Arch

To make this quite clear the architrave moulding shown in section at top of Fig. 4, and in detail at Fig. 5. contains, in its finished state, eleven arrises, which require eleven lines on the rod to indicate them. Now all that is required to draw the moulds are four lines, the inner and outer edges of each piece. When the stuff is cut to this shape, the machinist will automatically produce all the others with correctness, by working the face edge against the spindle, therefore these...

How To Draw Perspective Projection

One Point Perspective Projection

And touching the latter in point a, which becomes the centre of vision. Project this point to a line drawn parallel J distant 12 ft., to scale, locating the stationpoint thereon. From this point draw lines parallel with the sides of the frame a d and a-b, intersecting the H.L., which locate thereon the left-hand and right-hand vanishing points respectively. Draw the ground line G.L. 5 ft. below the ILL. and parallel therewith this locates the picture plane, upon which we can now produce the...

By bricklayers for setting out templets for wliat they describe as elliptic arches. Draw the span or major axis A-A. Divide this into three equal parts, in points 1-2. With these points as centres, and 2-A as radius, describe circles intersecting in point 3. Draw lines trom the intersection through points 1 and 2 to cut the circles, and these give the radius for describing the central part of the curve, the two ends being formed by segments of the circles already drawn. It will be seen that...

Butt liinges are made of cast-steel, wrought-iron, cast and rolled brass and gun-metal. The Projecting Butt Fig. 2, is made much wider than the average, and the projecting portions are thickened to improve the appearance. They are used where there is some large moulding or other projecting part adjacent to the door which it is required to fold upon. The example shown is further strengthened by hardened steel bushes upon the working surface, the remaining portion of the hinge...

Inclination Of Letters

Among practical draughtsmen the waste of time, especially by novices, in obtaining anything like satisfactory results without such assistance, places this absolute freehand method outside practical consideration. A slavish copying, or entire reliance upon set squares and rulers is not here advocated, but judicious use of them as aids to the beginner is recommended. With letters of types No. 2 or No. 7, four guide lines may be used their object will be obvious upon inspection. Where capitals and...

This frame has a metal water bar, in addition to the weathering and throating of the sill, to prevent snow drifting in. As French casements are used also as doorways it is advisable to have metal upon the sills to prevent wear of the parts. The transom in this case is made flush...

At B, erect a perpendicular, and make it equal to the given side bisect A-B, and from its centre c, with radius c-d, describe the arc d--c. Then from A and B as centres, and A-c as radius, describe arcs intersecting in E. From points A-B-E, with radius A-B, draw intersecting arcs. Join up the points of intersection and the pentagon will be constructed. To construct an Oblique Projection of a Pentagonal Prism, Fig. 5.

Thus with these three drawings the joiner can obtain all the dimensions of every straight piece in the job. The curved portion requiring special treatment will be referred to presently. No broken lines must be made in the length of a section. Obviously, if this is done, the rod is useless for its chief purpose, the actual laying down of the stuff upon it, and...

With wbirh wc can read off dimensions in the same manner that dimensions are read upon an ordinary scale in orthographic. drawings. The above is Parish's method, but the same results maybe obtained in a simpler manner, as shown in Fig. 2. Here two lines are drawn upon the base line A-D, having angles of 450 and 30 respectively between them. The true scale is plotted upon the 45 angle line A-B, and the divisions projected as before upon the 30 line A-C, which becomes the reduced or isometric...
