DETAIL A SCALE: 2-1
There is no rule for the draftsman to follow concerning the use of a drawing detail. It is up to him to determine whether or not a drawing detail will help clarify any particular area.
e. Drawing Scales. Drawing scales are used because some objects are too big to fit on a sheet of drawing paper and others are so small that they could not be seen on a drawing. House drawings, for example, are drawn at a reduced scale. Electronic microcircuits are drawn at an increased scale.
Figure 95 shows one full-sized and two scaled drawings of the same square. Note that the scale used is clearly defined.
