I finally got the stationary planisher that I pre-ordered almost a year ago from Otto Frei. At one point I was so sick of waiting I almost had a tool maker make me one. I now know that it was worth the wait. I freaking love this thing. It is great. I have been dying to get my own for literally three years (well three years in a few months). If you need to make something flat quickly this is the only thing that will do. It will make washers from jump-rings. It will make round wire square, it will flatten the edges of a ring, if you wanted to work harden some nickel silver for a box clasp or quickly take a low dome to a flat disc, this thing will do it in a couple of blows. It has a three inch upper platten and a 4 inch lower plate. It weighs a ton but again totally worth the back pain getting it down into the basement. The upper platten comes off so you can re-finish it if you have to. The spring can be replaced and the blue is a nice touch. They used to be red. Now I just need things to make flat.
