2nd Class Technical Drawing Exam

Post by geezer09 »


I am about to start studying for my last exam written exam for my second class ticket, technical drawing.

I ordered reed's technical drawing book and I am about to start going through that. I hate drawing and I am dreading that very much.

Does anybody remember writting that exam? I would greatly appreciate some sample questions to get an overall idea of the level expected to write the exam. Any information would be appreciated.

If you passed everything else for your seconds, you are going to pass the drawing.

Remember, the purpose of studying Drawing is so that if a part breaks you can make a drawing of it that a workshop can make.
Include all the information required to make whatever you have to draw.

I wrote my Tech Dre exam last month and was given a drawing from McGibbon's pictorial drawing book.
I had the 2 stroke diesel piston, it wasn’t the one from Reeds!! TC still likes to take some older drawings and incorporate them into their exam, you do have 2 to choose from thou.
