3. Use the intersection points as alternate centers

for the point of the dividers. Draw intersecting

arcs inside the angle (view B).

4. Use this point of intersection (O) as the center

for the point when you draw the fillet, as shown

in view C.

Use the following steps to draw a fillet or round

when the lines form an angle that is not a right angle.

Look at figure 14-14 as you read these steps.

3. Now draw the fillet, using the intersection of the

inside lines (point 0) as the center of the circle.
