Hide-head mallet (large)

Hide-head mallet (large)


Price: 15.00 (Including VAT)


Head is 40mm diameter X 80mm wide (3 X 1.75 inches) and is made of hide. It's for 'bashing' gold or silver items without marking them, e.g. if you are making a squashed ring round by pushing-and-bashing it on a ring mandrel.

With use, the hide splays out, but it never goes hard, it doesn't damage soft metals such as gold and silver, just bash away! (- but do take great care if the jewellery contains gemstones, do not hit it anywhere near the setting). This is the larger of two sizes, so it's good for thick rings, bangles etc.
