Product Details

Michael Good, in collaboration with Bill and Jordan Fretz, has designed 3 new planishing hammers for use in anticlastic raising. The Fretz-Michael Good P-1, the Fretz-Michael Good CP-1 and the Fretz-Michael Good CP-2 are made to Michael Good's specifications by the Fretz hammer & stake factory in Vietnam. Anticlastic rasing is a technique of forming metal whereby sheet metal is formed directly with a hammer on a sinusoidal stake. Because most anticlastic raising is done with fairly thin material, Michael Good recommends using these new polished stainless steel hammers with a nylon sinusoidal stake, although they will work just find with metal sinusoidal stakes or metal stakes and anvils of all kinds.

This Kit Contains:

137.187: The Fretz-Michael Good P1 120mm head length planishing hammer.
The major design feature that sets the Fretz-Michael Good P1 planishing hammer apart from all other planishing hammers is that the ends of the P1 hammer are cut away, so you can easily see the work through the bottom of the hammer. Another interesting feature is the relatively large diameters of the heads. This is so you can easily work around larger pieces like bracelets or sculpture.

137.188: The Fretz-Michael Good CP-1 148mm head length Cross Pein Planishing Hammer.
The Fretz-Michael Good CP-1 Cross Pein Planishing Hammer has a long and slightly curved head, two design elements that allows for a long arcing stroke, very useful for delivering a predictable strike on the workpiece. The narrow face of the CP-1 hammer is for working on thin concave curves, while the heavier and thicker end gives the hammer a good amount of heft for working on heavier material. Long 250mm (10") long handle length makes this suitable for heavy work when needed.

137.188-2: The Fretz-Michael Good CP-2 145mm head length Cross Pein Planishing Hammer.
The Fretz-Michael Good CP-2 Cross Pein Planishing Hammer has a long and slightly curved head, two design elements that allows for a long arcing stroke, very useful for delivering a predictable strike on the work piece. The CP-2 is similar to the CP-1, except the faces on the CP-2 are thinner and narrower than the faces on the CP-1. The narrow face of the CP-2 hammer is for working on thin concave curves, while the heavier and thicker end gives the hammer a good amount of heft for working on heavier material. Long 250mm (10") long handle length makes this suitable for heavy work when needed.
