swage block

Can someone tell me where this would be used? I only have it in the hardy hole to get a picture as I don't think it would be used there. Would the tapered base be mounted in a stump? The swages are graduated from less than an 1/16" to 3/8" as close as I could tell by laying a drill bit in them.

They're meant for sheet-metal work, but you can certainly use it as a swage block for small stock.  I wouldn't use it stuck in the hardy hole.  Make a stump out of dimensional lumber so the stake is at a decent working height and use it.  Lots of good things you can do with something like that!

Greetings Old Rascal,


The anvil was designed to fit in a multi stake plate..  You can purchase nice single mounting plate on E bay for a reasonable price..  Great tool if you know how to use it..   Good luck...  I forgot to say that they are typically not hardened for blacksmith work...


Forge on and make beautiful things.
