See what's inside the collection:

MKR-1 Planishing Hammer
Tool
The Maker Planishing Hammer has a slightly rounded working end for smoothing non-ferrous forged metal. The rounded end gives the classic planishing mark found on handwrought metal. The other working end is flat which can refine the round planishing marks to near smoothness. Enjoy this classic working hammer with a bold new profile.

MKR-3 Narrow Raising Hammer
Tool
The Maker Narrow Raising Hammer is a crosspein used to sink metal into concave shapes and fit into curves where a round planishing hammer will not fit. The hammer also leaves a dramatic texture on flat, concave and convex metal and jewelry.

H-1 Stake Holder
Tool
The H-1 Holder is the original holder for B (Bezel), M (Mushroom), F (Forming) Series Stakes and H-2 Holder. The H-1 Holder can be mounted on a sturdy workbench or Wooden Block (VB-1) to use the holder in a vise. The advantage of this holder is that it doesn't extend much past the edge of the workbench. The H-1 Holder is supplied with socket head bolts and nuts.

M-8 Mushroom Low Dome Stake (18 mm)
Tool
The M-8 has a diameter of 14 mm and is a round low dome mushroom stake. It is perfect for doming small areas on metal jewelry with an HMR-1 Planishing Hammer.

F-7 Thin Shell Stake
Tool
The F-7 is a small T-stake that is useful for forming concave and convex shapes by using different sections of the stake. When using a crosspein hammer in the recessed areas, it is possible to make a flat surface become concave. The domed areas are for forming metal bands or flat surfaces into domed shapes with the HMR-1 Planishing hammer.

Both the M-8 and F-7 stakes fit into the H-1 Holder that can be mounted on a workbench or on a block of wood and held in a vise. This holder allows the Fretz Miniature Stakes to be held firmly and makes it possible to rotate the stakes for working at different angles.
