It's been great for pressing those small pieces for my Dear Jane blocks -
Works really well for making tiny applique too.
For a small iron, it has a nice, solid weight - not too light. I like that. The model I bought was made in the 1950s I believe. I really love the way it looks.
(See my blog post on making this cute pressing board.)
My full size vintage GE iron. A little heavier but still that same nice pointed tip.
