Well, I was wrong. Not for the first time. I was on the Volare website and I kept scrolling down, way down. And I found the Crocket winding hooks listed. I stand corrected, once again.

The post for Crocket hooks on the Volare website is Mr. Bredehoft's post to his blog on 18 February 2013.  But it was worth a shot.

I may be wrong, but I believe that these are also sometimes called Crochet (or crocket?) hooks.  Might be why you didn't see them on Volars website.

I have figured out how to shrink my photos so I'll try again.

Anyone know of a source of winding hooks shown in the picture? Or am I just way too old and out of date?
