Forming Stake - Thin Shell
Fretz miniature metalsmithing forming stakes are made of hardened 420 stainless steel and feature highly polished surfaces.
The Thin Shell forming stake features a wave pattern with concave and convex ends. The Thin Shell works great with a variety of projects because you find the perfect convex or concave area for the size of your project.
These miniature stakes are used to form bracelets, pendants, bezels or to form hollow back rings. They can be used to perform other metalsmithing tasks, but on a much smaller scale.
These stakes are to be used with the Fretz H-1 stake holder (HOL-112). Easily mount the holder on your bench and swap out stakes quickly and easily.
