Default S hook bender

Since I have plenty of rod, and I'm CHEAP, making my own S hooks seemed like a better idea than paying for S hooks.
The base clamps in the vise via the flange, and is made from a piece of flat with a couple pieces of pipe welded to it. The pipe is about 3/4" long.

Default The other half

This is the WRENCH that follows the rod around the pipe stub and keeps the rod being bent tight to the hub.
The round stub fits inside the pipe and the flange follows the rod. The edges of the flange were releaved to prevent it from biting into the rod.

Well it took a little while, but I finally got it figured out, some of us Southern boys are slower than others. I see another project in the future.

It ain't gotta be pretty, just effective. I spent a good 5 minutes squirting steel on that wrench.
