Spring Back Stump Stand

A stump stand, often referred to as a bench pin stand or stump vise, is a tool commonly used in jewelry making and metalworking. It consists of a sturdy wooden or metal base with a protruding vertical post, and it serves as a support system for various jewelry-making tasks. Here’s an overview:

  • Construction:

    • The base of the stump stand is typically heavy and stable to provide a secure foundation for work. It may have a non-slip surface to prevent movement during use.
    • The vertical post is often made of wood and can be adjusted in height to accommodate the jeweler’s or craftsman’s comfort and the specific task at hand.
  • Bench Pin Attachment:
