Bonny Doon offers a new spin on the classic metal-forming stake. Bonny Doon stakes are CNC-milled from hexagonal stock creating precise synclastic and anticlastic shapes with less flex than found in traditional stakes. The hexagonal center of this stake clamps securely into a bench vise, providing a more stable work surface compared to traditional forming stakes.
This stake has two graduated synclastic forms at one end and two more with different radii on the other end; each end measures 3"L. When used in conjunction with the Bonny Doon urethane hammer this becomes a must-have for any metalsmith.
For the most secure hold use with the Bonny Doon Vertical Vise. The stake can also be secured in most standard bench vises. Milled from 1-3/8" hexagonal stock.
