What does bread and a leather sandbag have in common? They both need to be kneaded!
Use the sandbagto deaden sound and absorb shock, and to cushion items such as when engraving, carving, and texturing metal, and to raise work off the surface of the bench.
Do not use with metal stamping tools. Always work directly on a steel bench block which is set on a firm surface for stamping.
This Bench Block is a hard rubber dapping block with 6 working surfaces which offer ideal resilience when working with steel and hardwood punches, perfect for filing and other detail work.
Use below a bench block to absorb shock and deaden sound. Use as a platform for sanding, filing, finishing and even assembling metal clay works.
Makes a perfect platform for bezel setting because the rubber grips the piece and helps hold it in place.
