This is a perfect asbestos substitute soldering block (sometimes known as a Supaboc or Supablox). Good quality, long lasting fire-proof soldering block which provides a safe surface on which to solder and keeps the heat exactly where you want it – on your piece and not on your workbench!
It is absolutely essential for soldering or firing metal clay with a gas torch as it cleverly concentrates the heat on the piece being soldered rather than absorbing it. It has all the qualities of asbestos, don’t worry – it doesn’t contain any at all.
- Size: approximately 12.5 x 7.5 x 2cm
- Sturdy but can be easily carved into to make handy recesses for housing pieces which are tricky to support during soldering
- We recommend buying more than one (in fact we think this is such a good idea we offer a cheaper price if you buy two or more) so you can create a 'cave' to assist with achieving constant temperatures needed when soldering larger pieces (which can be tricky - this helps by reflecting all of the heat onto your piece) or to keep one for breaking into smaller blocks to support fiddly pieces.
- Sold individually
