The Details

Start by annealing your Pre-Decimal Australian / British Half Penny (this makes it workable), then clean and polish it to your liking.

Use the center washer and steel ball bearing on the 14mm hole of your steel dapping block for a perfect center dome. Give the half penny a gentle press between the Delrin® Mini-Pucks (or similar) to flatten the brim, then use the slouch hat puck and pusher on your press to fold the brim evenly and consistently. Optionally add a crease in the top of your hat using the cowboy hat crown creaser.

*Please Note:
– This product assumes you have a torch for annealing, a steel dapping block with a 14mm 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.
