Fretz Set #2 Deluxe Bezel Forming Stake Set
The Fretz Set #2 Deluxe Bezel Forming Set is ideal for making bezels when bezel mandrels do not fit the stone. The six stakes all have different curves and edges that allow the craftsperson to match the stone's curve with that of the miniature stake to make forming easy. The sharp corners of triangles, rectangles and other bezel shapes can be hammered in without mitering. All of the stakes fit into the H-1 holder so both hands are free to hammer and hold the project.
The H-1 holder may be mounted on a workbench or on to the VB-1 Wood Block that is then placed in a vise.
The Deluxe Set #2 is Set #1 with the addition of the R-1 Raising Stake and three 14mm Mushroom Stakes: flat, low dome and high dome. All for use in general forming.
The Set #1 includes:
Fretz miniature stakes are manufactured from hardened 420 stainless steel and feature highly polished work surfaces. Their size fits the demands of the bench jeweler and fabricator who often need high quality tools for smaller applications. Fretz stakes can be easily customized to specific needs with files and abrasive paper.
