REALLY nice to have the extra room to work on (versus the smaller one, which is a great starter block).
Love the extra room for bigger projects! Good addition to my metal stamping tools. Thank you!
love all the room I have to stamp now! works great for stamping multiple pieces or larger pieces. great investment!
I have 3 different sizes and this is one size gives you lots of room to work on bracelets, money clips and larger items. It also helps you work on multiple pieces at one time.
I have used a 2.5 inch square bench block for many years. It was a great size for my wirework. However, now that I'm working more with metal blanks, I really appreciate the extra space. I can rest my hand (holding the stamp) on the block more easily and steadily than on a smaller block.
I was really disappointed with this product. My old 4x4 bench block was made of polished steel, and didn't mar the back of the blanks I was working on. This one has a rough grain to it, and really scratches up the back of the blanks I'm using. When I let customer service know, they claimed that this was standard for bench blocks, and directed me to a video on how to buff the scuff marks out!
So happy I bought this ! The steel block I was using was just not cutting it. Lots of bounce. This one works great, and my stamping has never looked better !
