This small concave forming stake from Fretz® is perfect for creating steep curves on narrow bracelet blanks (up to 7/8" in width). The stake is also useful for forming tubular curves; it accommodates tubing that is at least 2" in diameter. The stake will accept blanks up to 7/8"; much wider metal can be used if you will be moving the metal laterally as you create your design. Stakes provide a surface under (or inside) the metal that enhances the work of the hammer in creating a wide variety of curves, folds and shapes. Choose stakes with surface features that allow you to create the forms you want.
