Fretz Fluting Stakes are designed to be used after your metal has been formed with other stakes. Depending on if your form is flat, convex, or concave, choose the appropriate fluting stake to create decorative flutes/creases.
For flat forms or forms that curve along one axis, such as cuff bracelets, the M-130 will do the job. For gentle convex forms, first use the M-132A to "rough in" your flutes, then the M-132B, with its sharper ridge, to refine them. For tighter convex forms use the M-113A "starting" stake in conjunction with the M-113B "finishing" stake. The M-133A and M-133B stakes are used sequentially to create flutes in concave forms. These two stakes have both a steep angle and a low angle, for creating deep or shallow flutes.
