Item specifics:

PLEASE SPECIFY THE HEAD SIZE YOU WOULD LIKE

A faithful reproduction of the classic '52' from our own vintage block

Our #151 is a direct duplicate of an original vintage #51 block that we own.
Our standard height is set at 6” (152mm) tall for a 22 13/16” (58cm) Crown. We have found this to be the best universal block height to make a variety of hand - formed hats.
Smaller circumference blocks will be incrementally shorter and larger circumference blocks will be incrementally taller to keep aspect ratios correct across the range and to ensure that if, for example, you were to block a small 56cm crown, it would look identical, to say, a 61cm hat from the same shape but larger Open Crown. Thus, making the same hat across the size range without distortion. If we did not stick to the rules of aspect ratio, the shape of your hats would not be uniform across the range.
Available with the following options for the Bases:


• Base A = 2 finger holes. Centre has a ¼” pin hole.
• Base B = 2 finger holed, centre has a 1” stand hole
• Base C = Traditional Pouncing Machine base.


FAQs

Yes we can do custom orders! Please email us: hatblocksaustralia@gmail.com

The blocks are varnished/ sealed but please be sure to wrap them in plastic before blocking to reduce risk of staining and any water damage. Your blocks should last you for many years. If your block has thin edges (often marked) please do not use pins in these areas as it may damage the block, instead use elastic, wrapping or other means. Avoid pushing the pins further than needed into the block. This will ensure that your block has a long life! Do your best to avoid dropping your block! As this can result in chipping. Puzzle blocks should not be left sitting in one piece for long periods. We recommend that you dust the inside of each piece with talcum powder regularly to prevent pieces sticking together.

Where applicable (ie crowns) we will need you to specify the head size you require, for example: 22", 22.5", 23" etc We may require the crown height ie: 3", 4" etc.
