Vee blocks are usually made of hardened tool steel or cast iron.

Hardened tool steel

Most vee blocks are made out of hardened tool steel because of its excellent wear resistance and toughness. Most vee blocks are made out of hardened tool steel because of its excellent wear resistance and toughness.

Cast iron

Cast iron is a material commonly used in engineering. One reason for this is that it is an effective absorber of vibration energy so it is suitable for tools used with machinery. In addition, cast iron is resistant to wear and has superior tensile strength. Cast iron is a material commonly used in engineering.

Vee blocks can also be made out of granite. The high density of the material means that granite blocks are resistant to wear and corrosion. In addition, they are easier to maintain than metal vee blocks and are more dimensionally stable.

Wonkee Donkee says: 'Granite vee blocks are dimensionally stable because they will retain their original shape and size, even after extended use.'
When selecting a vee block you should bear in mind how often you are likely to use the tool, what you will be using it for and your budget. Although granite vee blocks are the easiest to look after and the most hard-wearing, they are considerably more expensive. Cast iron and steel blocks are much more affordable and will perform just as effectively. However they will need maintaining more regularly.
