The Hitch

  3rd May 2014

The next job is the wire hitch that drops over the spear from the top, and holds the crossbar. I have a load of wire I used to use for making chainmail rings (never finished the shirt!) which should do OK.

Sadly, all I have left has already been spiralled ready for cutting into rings; so first I have to haul it out straight and flatten the damn stuff ready to, er, bend it.

After a fair amount of swearing and twisting, shazam, the hitch. It's not fab looking metal, but I intend to paint it and lash the crosspiece onto it which will make it look a bit nicer.
