This well-built master stone-setting system includes 24 hardened steel punches (sizes 0.75mm to 13.5mm) and a smooth hardwood handle with an easy-to-use chuck collet. With this range of size to choose from, you have better precision and closer control for your most delicate stone-setting work. These tools are ideal for bezel-, prong- and tube-style settings.
To set a stone, select the punch size needed (just slightly larger than your setting), position your stone in its mounting, then simply tap the concave punch over the setting with a mallet, moving the punch around in a circular motion to secure the prongs, bezel or tube edges over the stone. Use the punches to burnish the setting as well—secure the punch in one of the handles and work the punch around the setting. Your setting will be beautifully burnished with a professional finish.
Comes in a nice timber storage case with a catch.
