Made of smoothly finished hardwood, this U-Channel hardwood block has 6 channels with corresponding hammers. There is also a 90° v-channel for shaping on the back of the block.
This tools offers a new twist on shaping round or oval blanks, it shapes blanks into a perfect curve. You can texture or stamp the blank and then place the blank in the corresponding channel. Choose the wooden hammer that fits in the channel, lay it lengthwise on the blank and tap lightly with the plastic mallet to shape the blank into a curve. The curved blank can be punched using a hole-punch plier and used as a component.
This is a great dapping set. The hammers make it very easy to use. I also wanted a wider channel so I purchased a larger set too.

Nice little set. Dose a good job. Easy to use.
I like using this channel block. It does a great job. I have had a lot of fun experimenting with shaping longer blanks and creating a different look. I am glad I purchased this.
Good quality, does a good job shaping without marring the metal.
I love this! Versatile and quick for quickly shaping.
