Ratchet wheel image plane

One way to get the proportions of the 3D model is to import a drawing into your 3D modeling software. I'm using Maya, so this is what it looks like with the da Vinci sketch imported as an image plane. This just serves as a guide for me as I build the model. I'll eyeball the proportions to match, even though the drawing isn't perfectly flat (orthographic).
