    1) Post a diagram for better understanding. For example, you did not say this, but I am assuming the two shafts are being joined end to end and are on the same axis. Not perpendicular to each...

    So, you're going to let your supplier determine how to dimension a part they are making for you? I thought the customer was always right. What about the user? Don't they have a say here? Your...

    You said the hole pattern is not centered vertically. It sure appears to be, which tells me that whoever has to handle it and install it will be confused and frustrated. And they will blame you. ...

    I will leave it to Kelly to comment on the symbology, but as far as I'm concerned the hole dimensions are much better.
    Two comments: (1) check your vertical dimensions. The holes are not centered. ...

    Steel will wear aluminum. Period. Are you talking about a coating on the steel fixture or on the aluminum? If it is truly a costly problem, there are some aluminum coatings that do a really good...

    Your example is a very poorly done drawing in my opinion. Unfortunately it exemplifies a very common mistake, especially for inexperienced designers. The designer wants the hole pattern centered on...

    First - is this homework? Sure looks like it to me. If that is the case, there are some forum rules to which Kelly can refer you.

    Second - if this is indeed homework, then my compliments go out...

    A gyroscope speaker? Huh? You'll have to explain what you're seeing in your mind a little better. A speaker: a device which emits sound based on electrical input. A gyroscope: a mechanical device...

    That is an intriguing gearset... but I don't see how it could work. When I mentally follow the motions at each interaction point it locks up. Won't move at all. Am I seeing it wrongly?
