With the recent favorable review of our delrin cross pein hammer for
sinusoidal raising in Jewelry Artist Magazine, we have been
motivated to get serious about adding some sinusoidal stakes to our
So I have some questions for you sinusoidal stake users out there.
1 - Is the crest part of the stake used for forming? The way I have
seen them used the work is always being done in the bottom of a wave
not the top. If the top section is used it is a frequent use,
occasional use, or a rare use?
2 - On metal stakes the diameter/width of the stake tapers from one
end to the other. On the wood/plastic stakes I have seen the width is
the same over the length. Is there an advantage to have the taper
over the length and if so what is it.
Thanks in advance for helping us understand a sinusoidal stake
