Can't resist this stainless steel block when hubby took me to the stainless steel shop two days ago. Just nice for hammering. So I got the shop assistant to cut a piece for me - about 1.5 inch thick (2.5 in diameter). Took him about 10 minutes to get it cut.
The shop sells everything stainless, copper and brass except for soft stainless steel wire *sigh*. They do have the hard ones though. But can't use them for jewelry, they are too hard and springy.
While walking around, I saw the square stainless steel flat bar measuring about 2.5 x 4 x 0.4 in. Hm! Also very good for hammering :). In the end I decided to have both of them for RM46.00. Expensive? Well for the love of jewelry making, its worth it.
