If you work with metal, you will love this! Works for stamping, riveting, any type of hammering or when you need to shield metal parts. Perfect when using the hammer hand piece too! Originally designed for the precision metal fabricating industry, it found it's way onto the jewelry bench.
Available in two sizes: 4" x 3" and 4" x 12"
It's is very flexible and easy to place under your piece of metal. You can cut it or split it to place around a rivet or wire when you need protection from hammer blows.
I use it to maintain a nice rounded appearance when punching designs into silver, under rivet heads when fastening down, over stones when using my Flex Shaft hammer hand piece. ... anytime you need to protect from scratches or unwanted marks. See the 2nd photo to see how rounded the punch marks are.
Tuff and pliant- its durable and easy to handle. Great addition to anyone working with metal. Buy several and give it to friends- they will love you for it. You will find a zillion uses for it.
