Dixon Grobet metalsmith silversmith #13 knob end T Stake SOLD

The Dixon #13 is a versatile stake. The dual knob ends allow forming many radius shapes – bracelets, cups,  etc and each horn has different inside radii for forming curves on flat stock. You can use every surface of the knob ends to make dozens of shapes and curves. The shape of the horns also allows you to place the stake inside a vessel for forming. I used this stake the most, it is used and shows signs of use. See images for dings. I have cleaned and dressed this for my use using yellow tripoli finished to a dull polish.  You are free to clean, dress and polish for your style. Approx. 12 inches tip to tip, 1 1/8 and 7/8 inch knobs. This is sold “as is”. The #13 can be installed in a nice tree stump if you do not have a large vise or anvil. You may notice the price is less of a discount compared to my other sales. This simply reflects the fact I will continue to use this stake if I don’t sell 🙂

USPS Priority shipping insured with delivery confirmation in continental US is included in the price.

Dixon Grobet metalsmith silversmith #12 T Stake anvil SOLD

The Dixon #12 is the most versatile stake because it is a mini anvil with two tapering horns – the center portion is flat, one horn with a flat top and one horn nearly round tapering from about 1″ down to 3/8″ which works great for rings, earrings and bracelets. The #12 is barn fresh. It is used and shows signs of use. I have not cleaned nor have I dressed it since unpacking and it is not finished to a polish. This unpolished style is preferred by some smiths as the stake surface does not allow the work piece to move when struck while rough forming. You are free to clean, dress and polish for your style. This is sold “as is”. The #12 can be installed in a nice tree stump if you do not have a large vise or anvil or it can be fitted in the #88 stakeholder I have for sale on another post.

Dixon Grobet metalsmith silversmith T stake cowtongue for sale (#8#9 sold)

#’s 8 and 9 sold – less than half price!  Buy one or both. USPS Priority shipping insured with delivery confirmation in continental US is included in the price.

These are the so-called cowtongue T stakes. #8 is swept up at the tongue end and has a flat anvil surface with angled sides. The #9 has a curved top with radius sides and a small edge at the end – slight round inverted rocker (retail $314). The #8 is hard to find and is great because of the flat surface in addition to the tongue end – more shapes, angles and use with sheet. The #8 is barn fresh. I have not cleaned nor have I dressed it since unpacking and it is not finished to a polish. This unpolished style is preferred by some smiths as the stake surface does not allow the work piece to move when struck while rough forming. You are free to clean, dress and polish for your style. They are sold “as is”. Either of these can be installed in a nice tree stump if you do not have a large vise or anvil or they can be fitted in the #88 stakeholder I have for sale on another post.
