Forming Tools

Essential tools for forming metal: rolling mills, dapping punch sets, drawplates, steel stamps, chasing and repoussé tools, and a wide selection of hammers and stakes from Fretz and others.

  • Draw Plates

    Draw Plates

    Steel drawplates allow you to "draw" wire into smaller diameters, making it unnecessary to stock multiple gauges. Besides round, drawplates are available in square, triangle, and specialty shapes.

  • Metal Stamping Tools

    Metal Stamping Tools

    Metal stamping sets with numbers or alphabet letters (or both), specialized stamps with a variety of decorative designs, hallmarks for precious metals (18K, STER, etc) and ring stamping anvils.

  • Chasing & Repoussé Tools

    Chasing & Repoussé Tools

    Traditional chasing & repoussé tool sets are used for embossing metal surfaces from both the front and back to create textures and intricate details.

  • Dapping Tools & Forming

    Dapping Tools & Forming

    Dapping punches are used with dapping cubes or blocks to transform metal discs and other shapes into deep or shallow domes. Steel forming dies use curved channels to create a variety of shapes.

  • Wood & Plastic Forming

    Wood & Plastic Forming

    Wood dapping punches and blocks are used for forming soft metals into domes and other curved shapes without leaving marks in their surfaces as steel forming tools sometimes will.

  • Stakes, Anvils & Blocks

    Stakes, Anvils & Blocks

    High quality hardened steel forming stakes from Fretz Tools, traditional full-size metalsmithing stakes, and machined steel bench blocks and miniature horn anvils.

  • Forming Mandrels

    Forming Mandrels

    Hardened steel forming mandrels allow artists to create a variety of shapes in metal sheet and wire, including finger rings, cuff bracelets, necklaces and small wire wrapped forms.

  • Hammers


    Many styles of high quality hammers from Fretz Tools, German-made Picard hammers, as well as economy steel hammers in scaled-down sizes and soft-faced nylon, wood, and rawhide mallets.

  • Sandbags & Rubber Blocks

    Sandbags & Rubber Blocks

    Sand bags work great for holding work steady during forming operations. Rubber pads and block help dampen hammer blows when working with dapping punches and disc cutters.
