Dops_L.JPG (1718 bytes) BRASS DOPS WITH 1/4" SHANKS. With 30 different types and sizes of high quality, brass dops, Graves offers one of the largest selections of dops in the industry. All of the dops are manufactured from solid brass and come with a precision turned 1/4" shank. The brass construction of these dops avoids corrosion problems that can occur with less expensive aluminum. For ease of orientation each of the flat and cone dops are keyed with a 1/16" hole drilled into the turned shaft. Rectangular stones that are cut using the Vee dops are easily set by positioning the long side of the stone square with the lap.
