The Details

Whether you’re new to coin jewelry or a seasoned pro, Nickel Cowboy Hats sell well at shows, make great conversation starters, and are fun to make. However, they can be challenging – getting consistent results, getting a nice center dome, getting even brim folds with no scratching – this set makes it easy.

Start by annealing your US Nickel (this makes it workable), then clean and polish it to your liking.

Use the centering washer and steel ball bearing on the 11mm hole of your steel dapping block for a perfect center dome. Give the nickel a gentle press between the Delrin Mini-Pucks (or similar) to flatten the brim, then use the nickel puck and pusher on your press to fold the brim evenly and consistently.

Gallery images show an example nickel with center crease done using the optional Crown Creaser.

** Here’s how to use the sets:

*Please Note:
– This product assumes you have a torch for annealing, a steel dapping block with a 11mm opening, and a 1T arbor press (or greater, 6T press recommended).
– Flattening the brim after doming is an important step – you’ll get the best results, and helps prevent damage to the puck.
