"I am looking for stakes and hammers for sinking, raising and planishing silver bowls and trays. I am curious
as to whether any of your tools would work. They look so wonderful. I work with 20 and 18 guage silver
sheets. I am still a novice and would love some advice so as not to buy anything I don't need but will
be glad I have what versaltile tools I do eventually end up buying. Ami
The Tinman Respondeth:
Ami, Well I am happy you asked. Have you read Oppi? Metal Techniques for Craftsmen, by Oppi Untracht.
From reading that you will see what can be made, sort of how, and the tools. Also, there is a page for
Goldsmiths and another for Silversmiths.
Let me know. Kent
