Why do I need this item?

This product gives you the hard metal surface for shaping wire and sheet, but also provides a softer wood surface for metals such as copper. It also doubles as a "wire wacker" used to harden wire and sheet. Hammering wire or sheet against a smooth, solid, surface is necessary in order to "harden" the material so that it will retain its' finished shape.

Technical info
When selling bench blocks you should mention what measure of hardening the block . I have bought many blocks over the years and found them to be soft..should be more specific. My bench block was a propellor cylindrical bearing bought for a buck and it was hard.. that goes for your hammers as well
