Drifting Ball peen hammers for hawks?

Recommended Posts

Id it just me or are these stupid hammers as rough to drift for you as they are for me? Ive made several ball peen hammer hawks lately and they have wore me out :o Ive been buying good quaility hammers from the flea markets. The ones Im getting are some sort of alloy steel I think, maybe 4140 or these abouts. Every bit as hard to forge as 5160:rolleyes: I made a smaller "starter" drift but Im still wearing out my main drift to fast. Am I missing some trick? I get the hammer a good yellow but they are still tough as heck.
