Planishing (from the Latin planus, "flat") is a metalworking technique that involves finishing the surface by finely shaping and smoothing sheet metal. This is done by hammering with a planishing panel hammer or slapper file against a shaped surface called a planishing stake, held in a vice or a mounting hole in a blacksmith's beak anvil, or against hand-held, shaped, metal tools known as Dollies or Anvils.
Don't worry, you don't have to learn Latin to be good with a Planishing Hammer. You need only to take the Planishing Hammer workshop at Standard Motorcycle Co. with Marlowe from Rusted Jalopy learning the ins and outs of these two awesome tools!
