You are looking at my Dad's workbench. Some 30 years of silversmithing, cab setting, polishing, designing, etc. has been done at this bench. Some of the tools are that old. MOST of the tools have been purchased in the last 15 years, and used less and less as time has passed.

An attempt at describing what is is as follows, but not all's just too hard to list everything.

Bracelet mandrel-hardwood, ring mandrel-steel, wire soldering stand, charcoal soldering block(s), soldering pads (2), asbestos protector piece, fire brick for soldering, soldering tweezers, 2-small desk top type alligator clamp devices for soldering (one with a magnifying spectacle, 13 pr. pliers-- round square, bent, large and small on some types, bezel cutters, side cutters etc; one pair snips, 2 sets plastic ring guages, some dremel bits, some chemicals--silver black, flux, ochre, pickle, a nice little hanger bracket for torch, two (different sizes) jeweler's saw with approx 10 blades for each, an old ring sizer (I think), dapping block--sort of a home made affair, but it works, it is mainly used to stamp in patterns such as Zuni designs, a variety of hammer/mallets from small brass to larger leather, and more odds and ends. T actually is more, but listed in other listings...files, stamps, etc. The bench itself is not being sold , but everything on top of it as well as the items hanging, attached, and otherwise surrounding it.

Revealed in one of the pictures t is the base of a flourescent swing arm lamp---IT IS NOT INCLUDED. Also, t is a small coil of sterling bezel that IS NOT INCLUDED OOPS!, sorry

I am helping my elderly father with the sale of his multi-year collection of lapidary, silversmithing tools, jewelry making silver and rough rock. I hope to have everything listed by the 31st of August. All will be by a 5-day auction, all will be offered with no reserve. I have just one item that will not be offered as an item to be will be local pick-up only. Though I have off-and-on been a hobbyist in this area as well, I am vaguely familiar with his collection. Particularly, I am weak in identifying a lot of the rough rock. I am sorry to say his memory is not good, tfore information about some of it will be sketchy.The items that I have extensive knowledge in, I will advance that information, good or bad. It is our goal to offer good used equipment and other groups of rock, supplies, tools etc. for sale in such a way that we can expect that the buyer will be satisfied with the item and the information offered in the listing. I will try to answer any questions by email. One last request is that any potential bidder would carefully read the additional instructions and shipping instructions.

Thank you very much for looking, reading extensively,bidding and/or visiting the other items for sale!
