    Assuming you mean chamfer a cylinder, draw the smaller circle at the center of the larger one, then move the larger circle down by the proper amount, trim if needed, etc.

    Another option. Draw the whole thing in 3D and extract the 2D view using Flatshot, SectionPlane or SolProf.

    Or if we wait a while JD will tell the OP to use a modern CAD program like Inventor.

    If you draw a cylinder can you not just use the CHAMFER command? Seems to work for me

    Depends. Are you doing this as an isometric as the OP stated? Why not post an image of your solution?

    An example of a cylinder with a chamfer. It was done in 3D and the visual style set to Hidden.

    yeah ReMark sorry I was doing it as you have done it in your image, drawing a 3D cylinder in the 2D top view (only shoing a circle) then switching to the SW Isometric View and using the CHAMFER command.

    Not entirely sure what is meant by 'chamfer a circle' if it doesn't mean chamfer a cylinder.

    Stryker1989 - the OP asked about isometric drawing methods (2D) and not 3D.

    I guess I also should have noted that I used a SE isometric view for my cylinder in post #7.
