Thanks for the options. I'll go back through this when I'm back in draw time. I think once you have drawn a part 4 or 5 different ways, you finally learn the "right" way to do it.
I've found taking old blueprints (1970s) and creating them in 3D to be a great way of learning all parts of the product as you build up things you might not in my normal designing. Since it also is mainly sheet metal, it makes me wish I could swing Expert now, but we will see in a year or so.
