Reed Curving Block

by Randy A. Bergum

Copyright July 2003

This block contains cylinders of different radii ranging from 3/4" to 11". It is patterned after a block used by Dave Junchen, but with a few added curves in the smaller range. The block is made of 7075 aluminum, which is harder than most other alloys, and then hard anodized for surface protection.

Countersunk holes allow mounting to a bench with flathead wood screws.
