Saltfork Craftsmen ABA Swage Blocks Saltfork Craftsmen ABA Swage Blocks

These swage blocks are new castings from a good grade of cast iron.

Size: 12-1/4 x 7-1/2 x 3-1/2 thick. 65 lbs

Swage Block Notes: You will have to do some light grinding on the swage block at the parting line. The as-cast edges need to be radius ground as well before use. The club felt that most folks would rather do their own clean up, and it also helps us keep the cost down. Most of the depressions cast pretty clean; some take a little grinding to make really smooth. Typical of a sand cast part. The one in the photo has only been wire brushed no other grinding -- it's as cast. The amount of grinding and polishing you do is your choice.

Photo Note: Pictured is one block; it simply took two photos to show both sides. There are patterns on all 6 faces of the cube.

The Saltfork swage blocks are now $150.
