I recently received a riveting block. Beautifully polished, etc.
However, there were no directions, although I assume that you put a
wire with a balled-up end exposed and shape it to suit.
The thing that really puzzles me is that there are some slots on the
edge with an angled inside edge. What on earth are they for? I
showed it to my jewelry instructor who didn’t know either.
None of my books mention such a block, so I guess not many people use
them. I sure would appreciate any comments telling me more about
