This is a new product for me to offer in my Artisan Hat Tool line, which has grown rather quickly. This particular tool is called a Flange Stand, since it holds up a Flange used in Artisan Hatmaking Shops.
Flange Stands are used by Hat Makers to hold up a Brim Flange, so that the hat can be turned upside down and stuck down into the center of the Stand. This allows the flattening and shaping of the brim on a workbench or table top. The old looking “toilet seat shaped thing” is a Brim Flange. Brim Flanges come in hundreds of sizes and styles, but they all need to sit on a Flange Stand.
This Flange Stand was built for Rachel Pollock, a hat maker, costume designer, special topics lecturer, and a University level instructor on stage costumes and hats. She is a very talented lady, and Rachel's Labricoleuse Hat Making Blog can be found by clicking the link here.
Here is Rachel’s initial review of the new flange stand
To order one of these Flange Stands, you can email me, or commission an Order at my Etsy.com store
Thanks for looking,
