In the early 1990s, Phil Poirier created a line of jewelry incorporating anticlastic and synclastic shapes made from strips of gold and silver. The need for efficient hammers and stakes inspired him to develop and make a urethane-headed hammer and stakes to form the shapes he envisioned. His Bonny Doon Small Forming Tools take the innovations of his hammer and stakes to a whole new level.
What’s unique about these tools is their incredible versatility. You can use them to create your own forming stakes, or as forming dies in your hydraulic press.
To create your own forming stakes, place the die adaptor in the Bonny Doon vertical vise and attach the appropriate die.Shop all Bonny Doon presses and forming tools
