How to draw a line along the intersection of two planes

Hello all,
I am working out some sort of complex geometry for a mechanism that pivots about 75deg in a tight spot. 
I drew two lines: where the motion begins, and where the motion ends. 

I created a point-normal plane at the pivot-end of each line, thinking that the intersection of these planes is the correct pivot axis (it is not a simple 90 degrees due to lack of space in the structure for a simple solution). 

I wonder how to draw a line where two planes meet. 

Or am I approaching the problem totally backwards?
