No. 569 11 3/4″ Tapping Block

No. 569 11 3/4” Tapping Block

This 11 3/4” long tapping block is machined from 3/4” thick solid plastic. It is used along with a hammer to tap the sides or ends of the boards together to eliminate gaps. The bottom edge is relieved on one side and one end. The relieved bottom edge is placed over the tongue of the board to be tapped. In this position, the body of the tool contacts squarely against the outer edge of the board, reducing the risk of damage. The long “U-shaped” handle provides better control against undesirable rotation when the block is hammered towards the end, as is commonly required. Dimensions: 3″ wide x 11 3/4” long x 3/4” thick. Net weight: 1 lb.
