Features and Applications
Doming Blocks and sets of Punches are available commercially in steel, brass or hardwood as appropriate to the metal being 'domed' and the task in hand (e.g. working with softer metals and more delicate articles may be achieved using brass or hardwood tools). Alternatively they can be self-made to suit individual projects.
A similar block when Blacksmithing for example, can be made by placing a short length of suitable diameter steel tubing over an inverted convex punch (e.g. a Stake perhaps), and pouring in molten Lead to create the block.
