In a detailed drawing of a particular part, it may be necessary to show the position of adjacent part/s for the convenience of understanding the layout. In the case of the detailed drawing of the movable jaw, the adjacent hardened jaw position is indicated by the chain double-dotted line on the left-hand side of the right-hand-side sectional view. Such parts need to stand out but not be obtrusive so they are drawn using type K lines, the thin, continuous, double chain dotted lines. Adjacent parts are usually shown in outline without any specific details.
