    Once you have verified proper functioning, it would be great for posterity if you would publish those dimensions.

    That was my original intentions. Of course, but theirs a reason why you can't find these on the internet. My guess is Patents since they are still kind of in business.

    I really don't feel like getting sued, or maybe I'm over thinking it.
    I really, really want to share but I don't think I can.
    I don't look forward to making $ with these, sh_t I would make a drill fixture for free for some one because that's what kind of guy I am.

    I am sure Ted's Szabo patents have now expired. What was the first year the LDA came out?

    The LDA came out in either 2000 or 2001.

    Whether or not the patents have expired, a patent only prevents second or third parties from making a profit from a first party's intellectual property. You can't sell copies of Ted Szabo's drawings (if they exist). I don't think a patent, if still in force, prevents you from sharing a sketch of an object and saying the distance from hole A to hole B is 'X,' and the distance from hole A to hole C is 'Y.'

    You make a good point grasshopper.
    I made two drawing versions on SolidWorks, one has dimensions and the other has hole names with dimensions.
