I see some members are seeking replacement parts for their sets and decided to ask just what should a be in a working staking set. I know my set is incomplete, so far has been adequate for my limited abilities.
Thats a question with a lot of answers as manufacturers made different sets with different numbers of stakes and stumps. The anvil itself also has different attachments like a jeweling lever.
As long as its working for you I would recommend only adding those things that you find you need but do not have. I have 2 sets, one is setup for jeweling with a lever and additional stumps, the other I like for balance staff work and tightening canon pinions . But I dont use all the stakes on either set.
Doing a "Find-Or-Search" using the words "Staking Set" brings up a plethora of insightful comments, images, etc. that I found fascinating.
In a recent post Richard Romero is offering to eMail the K&D Manual "staking set advise" so obtaining a copy of that PDF may be of additional help.

I tried uploading the two K&D manual PDFs I have from Richard and Chris, but they're too big. If I mailed them to you, could you post them as stickies or another sort of reference?
Send them along and we will see what we can do.

Jim, You are not the only one who keeps two sets on hand. I have a full size Marshall with handle I use as a jeweling set and then I have a Marshall set called the Little Giant (Actually i/2 a set originally sold as their smallest set) which I use for staffs.
Now that I have two I remember the day I could only wish I had a staking set. It was a far off foggy dream.
