The manufacture of looped wire

Determine the desired length of the hinges and mark on a wooden bar and two dots at this distance. Make two small peg (of pile) from a round wooden rod and drill two deaf holes in the marked points of the bar of the same diameter as the piles. Insert the piles into the holes.

This wooden device called a gig. For small loops do piles gig of a thin rod; for larger loops, use a thicker rod. To create a greater effect, work with wire of different thicknesses.

Hold the gig so that the piles were located on a straight line directed from you forward and upward. Tightly pressed with your thumb the end of the wire to the upper surface of the bar to the left of the piles, slide the free part of the wire to the bottom of the pile and bend the free end of the wire at a right angle around the bottom of the pile. Then bend the wire up between the two piles and around the top. Remove the bent portion from the piles and move it to the left, repeating this process to obtain two more bending. Continue these operations until the looping wire reaches the desired length.

You can do the looping wire and without Giga, manually bending it with pliers. To loop was the same length, apply a direct wire risks at regular intervals. The width of the loops, measure with your fingers.
