PULLS AND HINGES p.163 plates. These pulls are to be fastened in position with round-head screws. The stock used for the plates is 1/16 in. and 1/8 in. thick. The 1/8-in. stock is drawn thinner on the outer edge with the hammer. The lug that the rings are fastened to Fig. 109. Drawing for a Pull with Scalloped Plate is riveted onto the plate. In doing this a square hole is punched in the plate and countersunk on the back. After the lug is riveted it is dressed smooth with a file or grinder. The rings are first twisted; then the tenon is filed round at the ends. They are then heated and formed and may be sprung onto the lug while hot.
