John Newman Trunnion Mount Block

John Newman Trunion Mount Swage block

John Newman Trunion Mount Swage block:

This is a beautifully designed general purpose and artist blacksmith block made to be easy to manipulate. The typical swage block of 200 or 300 pounds (90 to 140kg) is difficult to move and requires stands with different levels to support the block at a convienient height. The trunnion block rotates easily to present every feature with lifting the block. The trunnion idea is an old one.

140 pounds (63.5kg) 7 x 5-1/2 x 18", 21-3/4" OAL (178 x 140 x 460, 552mm OAL)

John Newman is a full time professional patternmaker and one of the best modern swage block designers.
