[/kml_flashembed]A five-part block can be dismantled inside the blocked crown to allow you to get the crown off the block without stretching the fabric.
Guy Morse-Brown – engineer/inventor/genius(!) created a system for producing these type of blocks to the highest possible standard and functionality and we’re confident that you will not find better quality anywhere else. Many of our dove-tail five part blocks are supplied together with our special extractor (seen in use above), enabling you to gently dismantle the block while inside the blocked crown. Instructions are included with the extractor where appropriate.
Tip: A common feature on old toppers is that the sides are more flared than the front and back. This is easily acheived by using a broad oval block. When the sides are pulled in to fit a slim oval brim, the front and back will be pushed out and the effect will be complete.
Wow, the block just arrived today. It is amazing everything I wanted and needed. It is just as I had pictured, I cannot wait to use it. I cant thank you enough, it is perfect I cant believe how symmetrical and clean it is. Some friends were telling me to get a local carpenter to do the job but their product would never compare. I will send you a picture of a finished top hat, but it may be a while as I have to wait for everything else. Thank you for your patience and time. I am proud to say that I will have made my top hat on a Guy Morse Brown topper block. Thank you so, so much. Samuel Baerg – USA
