Making a Coat Hook

Extracts from this document...


PROJECT: - Making a Coat Hook THE HOOK This part had to be marked out very accurately. To mark out accurately I had to make one edge straight and then make one end straight and at exactly 90� to the straight edge. MAKING ONE LONG EDGE STRAIGHT METHOD Using a FILE and a RULER, I filed one long edge until it was as straight as the edge of the rule.

When the edge is straight no light shows through. ...read more.


The blade was used to look for the high and low points on the end.

Using the surface plate and a scribing block I found the centre line along the hook section. ...read more.


FILING ENDS I filed the end radius by filing up to the marked lines. The radius was 11mm or half the width of the hook. I followed the safety procedures for filing. BENDING Using a 45degree and a 60degree template and the FOLDER I bent the hook to the shape shown on the drawing. It is easy to trap fingers in the folder so I kept my hands clear during this operation. FINISHING Once all operations on the hook were complete I cleaned off all of the marking blue and made sure all edges were smooth and presentable. I used emery cloth and wet or dry paper to achieve a surface good enough to spray with paint. I put the hook to one side and started the BACK PLATE.
