Bonny Doon offers a new spin on the classic metal-forming stake with the medium-sized curves on this versatile combination stake. The combination synclastic/anticlastic shape of this stake allows you to form anticlastic shapes in the depressions and synclastic shapes on the convex surfaces. The stake has three graduated syclastic forms on one end and two on the other end; each end measures 3"L. When used with the Bonny Doon urethane hammer, this stake becomes a must-have for any metalsmith.
For a more stable work surface, compared to traditional forming stakes, the hexagonal center of this stake can be secured in most standard bench vises; however, for the most secure hold, use with the Bonny Doon vertical vise—the points of the hex shape index into the grooves in the vise face, providing an uncompromising grip on the stake. Bonny Doon stakes are CNC-milled from hexagonal steel stock creating precise synclastic and anticlastic shapes with less flex than found in traditional stakes; this stake is milled from 1-1/4" stock.
