Making a Coat Hook

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.

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.
