Can I insert a sketch into a sketch?

Hi all,

I have to model two different drive belts for the front of my engine. I have used the "Belt/Chain" process to create the belt part for the first one which is essentially only the path sketch. Rather than me sketch the profile of my drive belt within this part and then sweep it along the path, and then repeat the same process for the second drive belt, I was wondering if I could sketch the drive belt profile and save that as a part and then insert this into the auto created "Belt/Chain" sketch part and perform the sweep along the path that way (Presuming a sweep is how you complete the Belt/Chain process). And then just rinse and repeat for the second drive belt, rather than profile my belt twice..........

 

Is this the proper way to perform this Belt/Chain function?

 

Regards,

Dave.
