Spent a bit of time this afternoon making some hooks that will be used for painting parts. The raw materials for the hooks were wire frames from political campaign signs and given our election system the supply is virtually unlimited, although sporadic.
I had three of the wire frames that I cut into 14" pieces with these,
My pattern was a hook used in the greenhouse industry to hang things,
A couple of C-clamps and some scrap steel of the needed dimensions,
Test fit the pattern,
And a few minutes later, very useble hooks to use for painting parts,
Cheap and effective!
