I Forge Iron

Riveting hammer


Recommended Posts

I don't think I ever posted this, a little project I did a while back.  It's a copy of a riveting hammer in the Royal Armouries in Leeds.  I made it in my shop in Michigan, and went by memory and a sketch.  When I went back (I made this on a visit home) I brought mine to compare.  It's forged from a piece of round spring steel.  As it turned out I started with a piece a bit too small in diameter so it's smaller than the original, but the hammer is fine for small rivets.

With the original.  I intentionally made the handle a bit heavier.

(The eye isn't cockeyed, it's a little burred wood from wedging.)
