Hide-head mallet (small)

Ref: MALLET-HIDE-SM


Price: 12.50 Including VAT

Head is 25mm diameter X 80mm wide (3 X 1 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. This is the smaller of two sizes, so it's good for small objects such as fine rings. Do take if the jewellery contains gemstones, do not hit it anywhere near the setting.
