    Default Delrin Anticlastic stakes

    At last, I have a batch of them completed:



    These are made to Michael Good's design from Metals Technic; dimensions of the small stakes are 185x40x13mm thick; the larger ones are 230x50x20mm thick for forming larger forms.

    For those who are wondering what these are, take a look here - or for some more advanced forms, here.

    I have 4 large and 2 small on offer; the large ones are 32.50 + 3 postage each, the smaller ones 25 + 2.50 postage. Obviously, I'll combine postage where needed.

    They're ruffty-tuffty engineering plastic Nic - they don't need coddling, they need a good beating!



    Glad you like them.

    Right, I'm out of these for the time being; I've had a few requests for some more, so I'll start on a new batch.

    In the meantime, I'd love to see what people are making with them?

    Hello Peter
    Would be interested in buying one of your anticlastic stakes when they are ready.....are you putting them on here, or contacting people direct for orders? Can you advise which type of hammer is best to use as I have only used a metal sinusoidal stake with a cross-peen hammer in my jewellery class.
    Look forward to hearing from you

    Actually, I do have another batch ready for sale - but I'm trying to get a tutorial finished on using them too. Dealing with animals with a self-destructive streak has put a crimp in things recently...!
    I chop & change depending on size - for larger things like bangles I've been using either a conventional raising hammer or a nylon cross pein (that reminds me, I need to finish oiling the handles on them); for the smaller stuff I use either a bordering hammer or a modified chipping hammer. Basically, I try to match the curvature of the stake to the curvature of the hammer/mallet as much as possible.

    Hi Peter - I'd be interested in buying one too. after you posted details of your last batch I bought myself a piece of delrin, plus the book with the pattern, but..... life's too short and delrin's too messy, so, yes, I'll give in and just buy one from you I think....

    Looking forward to the tutorial too!

    cheers
