    Swage Block substitute.

    Proper Swage blocks for a blacksmith are kinda pricey, so from inspiration from John Switzer, I made a nice little substitute for my hardy hole. I imagine this idea can be applied in most crafts... need a tool make a tool!

    Not yet. I'm thinking about making a few different ones. One with round swages, one square, one hex, etc.
