In the attached picture I can get as far as design except when I get to the radius and angle. I'm lost to figure out how to cut extrude that area. Just need some direction.
In the top down view, draw the profile and extrude.
Create an additional surface (pink) that is the same as the "bottom" and use it as an end condition for the Extrude Cut operation
Or make cut extrude:
And next step boss extrude bottom:
When in doubt - Attach the *.sldprt of your attempt here.
Edit as needed.
I tried the zip file but it's a newer version than 2018 and won't open. Can you do it as a STEP file for me. You did a fantastic job.
Attach your attempt here.
Here is the part file
We will have to start over from scratch.
Note the color of your sketch vs the color of my sketch. Does the difference in color mean anything significant to you?
Note the simplicity of dimensions in my sketch (no duplicated dimensions.) (You can ignore that I did mine in metric and you used inches.)
I have to go to class for a while, but see if you can reproduce my Sketch1 (in your Inch dimensions).
Start a new part file.
Step 1. Sketch rectangle as shown.
Note that the lines have changed from blue to black - indicating that first step is fully defined.
Also indicated as Fully Defined in lower right corner of screen.
Step 2. Sketch centerpoint slot as shown...
Step 3. Sketch a rectangle as shown and add a Midpoint constraint between the vertical lines.
Step 4. Dimension the .145 and drag the other edge of the rectangle coincident snap to the slot...
Step 5. Add the construction lines and tangent arcs as shown (add equal (=) relation to the arcs).
Step 6. Start a New Sketch on a perpendicular plane and sketch as shown (I had to guess on three of the dimensions - change as needed).
Where did you go? It has been 24hrs since last communication?
These problems are usually solved within 30 minutes.

I >>guess not<<.
Not a student. This is my full time job. Been at it for three years self taught. After your help and some midnight oil I was able to complete the drawing. Thanks for your help.

I recommend that you Attach the result here - I suspect that you have picked up some poor modeling habits along the way and could get more sleep at night after a couple of back-and-forth suggestions.
Edit: And help save the planet by burning less oil.
