I'm a begginer and was wondering from where I should buy hat blocks? Brand new ones cost a fortune as I can see (150-300$). Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy them? Im located in Europe.
Hi Emilis, I often tell students they are actually learning a trade and like all trades need some tools. I know how hard it was to buy a range of blocks as a mum of 4. There are cheap blocks but many students have been caught out as timber is not suitable & so hard.

eBay is a good place actually
