Bench Blocks from Cooksongold

We stock steel bench blocks and rubber bench blocks. One bestseller is the hard rubber bench block, which is ideal for silversmiths, metalsmiths, planishing and for jewellers who use anvils or staking tools. This piece can also be useful for flattening, laying out or chasing. It comes in 10cm in length by 10cm in width and with a depth of 2.5cm and a weight of 365g. Looking to work with a steel stake instead? Try the Steel Bench Block 4" X 4" by renowned brand, Vintaj. It features six working surfaces which offer ideal resilience when texturing, letter imprinting and riveting. It’s also perfect for filing and other detailed work. We suggest you use with a rubber dampening block to deaden sound and vibration, while having a sturdy and solid creating surface.
