Quick! I need help producing an engineering drawing!

Attached is a bottom fixture block that I am having machined. It consists of 4 threaded through holes with two being drilled perpendicular to the top surface, and the other two holes are at 15 degree angles. There are two 7/8"-9 threaded holes and two 5/8"-11 threaded holes. Our drafter is out on vacation and I need to have a drawing of this produced by today. If anyone could help or at least point me in the right direction that would be great!

Here is a start to a drawing for you.

Hope it gets you to where you need to be.

Is anyone else upset, that rather than hire enough drafters, companies are moving towards panhandling for drawings on Autodesk forums?


...I'm half joking... but half not joking.

I was going to mention that I get $45 an hour in the evenings for this. And yes I have the same problem, I need 2 more people here to catch up in moving to vault and I'm not able to hire them.

I would be willing to help like this some since I have had many people take time to teach me how to opperate the program when many here are paid to teach. So I guess it all depends on your perspective.

Ya, my boss has me running my personal machine at work.
