Planishing presses are in essence a planishing block and a heavy duty hammer comprised of 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. Cutting and milling, can often make the surface uneven so a planishing press is a quick and efficient way of flattening your work after it has been formed.
Presses are great to emboss patterns or designs, simply place the pattern, for example wire/symbol etc, on the planishing pad, then place the metal sheet over the pattern and use the sprung planishing head to hammer the sheet until the model is transferred.
- To keep the planishing surfaces maintained grease with WD40 (see link below).
- Bolt the press to a work surface through the pre-made holes in its base, approximately Ø10mm (bolts not supplied), preferably three to four inches long.
