Fire iron hooks

Here's a little photo series to show how I made the fire iron hooks for my GWR 1854 saddle tank. Nothing revolutionary - the important thing, I found, is to bend the angles before doing the u-curve.

I suppose the brass strip could be a little thinner, but on the other hand these will withstand handling better.


  1. Really fine work, Mikkel- and I am not sure how you managed to get them so consistent! A super sequence.

  2. Hi Iain, thanks, just a small task but it does make a visual difference. Consistency is courtesy of the modeller's two best friends: Trial and Error :-)
