I bought an old K&D staking base. The seller threw in about 20 very small (in diameter and length) stakes with varying types of ends. I don’t believe they are intended to be used with the upper of this “standard “ base.
Please educate me about the use of these VERY small stakes. Perhaps they are used along with a staking anvil?

Please

I can't see enough of it to attempt a good ID on the stake. Based on the size, it may be the type that is used with a roller remover referred to as a "Duplex" roller remover. That's all I've got. Good luck.
Cheers.

As have been said we need more pictures of the stakes.

I have a set of small stakes that are intended for replacing cylinders in cylinder escapements. They have what may be considered odd tips- I don't use them very often, but when I do, I insert them in a holder/punch that fits the ordinary staking set.

I have a small set of stakes and that type that are a kit in a wooden container. They are for removing rollers and the like. I also have two complete staking sets which are all way too long to use for that purpose.
