The hook was fixed by pushing though a hole in the batten before bending around the batten. Feel free to replace with an “engineered” solution.

The surplus geared motor used on the whirl-litzer. This could easily be replaced with a rubber winder or an electric screwdriver

The, fixed hook made from a length of coat hanger wire. It must be springy!

Here you can see the 0.065mm enamelled copper wire I used wrapped 7 times around the hooks. This method of making wire is good because you can customise the wire totally for different applications.

The quality of the wire is good and most won’t know it was homemade.
