Blocks, Presses - Planishing

Planishing blocks are a thick metal slab made from the highest quality hardened steel to planish or 'hammer' on metals such as gold, silver, copper, brass, platinum, palladium, titanium, etc, in order to flatten metal after it has been cut with shears and/or put through a rolling mill. These processes, particularly the latter, can often make the surface uneven. Both sides of our planishing block are case hardened and ground flat polished on both sides, so the whole block is usable.

Additionally they are used to emboss patterns on designs, simply place the pattern, for example wire/symbol etc, on the planishing block, then place the metal sheet over the pattern and planish until the model is transferred onto the sheet.

We have a large range of sizes to cater for big to small jobs as well as a vast array of hammers and mallets to use with our planishing blocks.

Please note:
To keep the Planishing Block maintained grease with WD40 (see link below) when not in use store in a dry place.
