    Flat-top Domed Steel Dishing Set

    $120.00
    2-1/2" Diameter; perfect for forming dishes Set of 3 different flat-top dome sizes: shallow, medium, high Can be used on a tabletop with a plastic/rawhide mallet or in a hydraulic press (see full description for more details)
    SKU: Flat-top Dishing Set

    Tabletop use: Use a ball-peen hammer and urethane puck to sink an annealed disc into a shallow dome. Place the disc on top of the shallowest former, and use a plastic/rawhide mallet to form the disc. Anneal, and use progressively larger formers until you achieve the desired dome. This video uses a full-dome set, but the techniques are the same: https://www.facebook.com/kevin.potter.12935/videos/10216069637607318/

    Hydraulic press: Must be used with our magnetic tool steel pusher and a 2" or 3" 95 durometer urethane puck. You MUST center the former on the pusher, and center the pusher on the upper platen of your press (check front to back and side to side). Place annealed metal on the urethane, and press the former into it; you won't be able to form the entire disc in one pressing. Repeat to press multiple times, rotating the metal as needed, to create a smooth dome. Repeat with progressively larger formers until you achieve the desired dome.This video uses a full-dome set, but the techniques are the same:  https://www.facebook.com/kevin.potter.12935/videos/10216069690328636/
