Making Some Croquet Hoops
I bought a croquet set at a yard sale that was complete but for 5 missing hoops.Measuring the length of some wire. Using my Marvel #5 rod parter. Lengths of wire. Straightening it out, using the drill press vise as a bending aid. Relatively straight. I set up my Di-Acro bender. I bending to the Sharpie marks. One bend. Two bends. The originals had a hoopier form, but I prefer a square hoop. Ok, I don’t really care, it was just less labour intensive. Trimming them to length. Ready for a game of croquet.
