Hat Block Spinners are used by custom hat makers to support the Crown Block and hold the hat while working with the felt. The Spinner is a stand that allows the block to be spun without dragging the hat felt on the work bench.

Shown in the Photos, are four different models of the Block Spinners I make.

Project Story:

Hat Makers use a Block Spinner to rest the Hat Block on, so that it can be spun while working on the hat.

Can I have your permission to drool? :-)

Seriously, Mark, I hope you are consulting an attorney. There are a lot of technicalities to copywrights and trademarks.
