  1. Gotcha! Thank you for the speedy reply! I subscribed!

  2. A steel bench block or an anvil are necessary for metal stamping. A wood block would have too much give when struck with the hammer. The give would allow the stamping blank to move away from the hammer slightly and would result in a less clear stamping. The metal keeps the blank in place, ensuring a hard hit and a clear image.

  3. Is it absolutely necessary to use a steel block? Can it be wood? Or is there any other kind of alternative? Thanks!
