An elevation and plan of a brick bay are shown in the illustration, the sides of which are 8 inches, 3 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 10 inches wide. Laps or flanges for soldering are to be allowed on the 3 feet 2 inch pieces and no laps on the 8 inch and 5 feet 10 inch pieces. The lookouts or iron braces are indicated in the plan by the heavy dashes making a total of 9 required.
After the detail section is drawn and knowing the angle of the bay in plan, the angle is placed as shown by ABC, being careful to place CB on a line drawn vertically from 3-4 in the section. The miter line is then drawn as shown by BC, the section divided into equal spaces, and vertical lines dropped to the miter line BD as shown. At right angles to BC the girth of the section is drawn from the miter line BD at right angles to BC, thus obtaining the upper miter cut shown. Now using this miter cut in practice, make the distance from either points 25 or 24 (which represents the line of the wall) equal to 8 inches, 3 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 10 inches. The 3 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 10 inches have opposite miter cuts as shown.
As will be seen by the plan, two eight inch pieces will be required, one right and one left and two 3 feet 2 inch and one 5 feet 10 inch pieces. Nine iron lookouts will be required formed to the shape shown in the detail section, where holes are punched for bolting as there indicated.
