A New version of our original hook manufacturing jig

4 inches diameter  X  1 7/8  thick with a 1"  X  1"  X  2" Bolt on hardy shank ( can be unbolted and replaced with any configuration that you want )

Approx Two inches thick gets the working face of the jig high enough off the anvil face so your hands and tongs have room to perform their task with comfort and safety.

Perfect for doing Demonstrations

You can clear your bench of many single purpose jigs and just grab this one jig to do most any hook / bending encountered in the average shop.

One Special ADAPTER pin that allows the user to adapt any 1/2 drive socket to this Jig ( even deep well sockets) Which Greatly expands the Versatility of this tool
