Another Method of Drawing Lines Perpendicular to Each Other at Common Angles. closely can derive much benefit from the GH will be the line desired. knowledge of the subject gained.

This latter statement may often be put If two lines are to be perpendicular to to use, as we may see from Fig. 28. In each other at common angles, such as making drawings of plumbing work, it 30 deg., 45 deg. and 60 deg., the problem is far oftener the case that a branch is is simple, and may easily be seen by refer- taken from a horizontal or vertical line ence to Fig. 27.

Therefore, in laying out work, the 30 deg. triangle placed against the tee such as shown in Fig. 28, the main pipe square. To obtain a line at right angles is drawn in with the tee square, and the to A B just reverse triangle No. 1 to the lines of the branch are drawn in with the use of the 45 deg. triangle in position No. 1. Lines representing the hubs are put in with the same triangle in position No. 2.

In Fig. 29 we show right and wrong methods for drawing quarter and eighth bends, and in Fig. 30 like methods for running traps. We do this in order to show our readers some of the mistakes which it is natural for a beginner to make, and which he can the better avoid after comparing wrong constructions with correct. The common quar. ter bend is a compact fitting as No. 1 will show, and the mistake often made is in giving it the long sweep shown in No. 2, although there are special fittings made after the manner of No. 2. The same fault is often found in the drawing of eighth and other bends. In drawing the quarter bend, first run the horizontal and vertical lines, then with the compasses set on a center close to the intersection of the two inside lines, describe the curves so that they will run smoothly into the respective lines. Of course both curves are struck from the same center. Many times the eighth bend will be used between a Y branch and a straight run of pipe. In this case, draw in the lines for the Y branch and the straight line, then connect these lines with the proper curve. Not until this is done should the hub on the branch or on the bend be drawn. Now with reference to
