My first hammer


Recommended Posts

Cool hammer making is fun and it's really nice to be able to say not only did I make this or that but I made the hammer that made it. I take it you made the tongs also? Something you might consider on the next ones is to not make the eye hole round. That way it won't be tempted to twist and will stay indexed with the handle. Will you be going to the NWBA hammer in coming up?

I started out with 2" stock it was a pin of some kind from a piece of heavy machinery. I also made the drift and tongs . The hole ended up being kinda oval/ diamond when I finished it took a lot of work on my own I was quit pleased when I finally punched through.Not sure if I'll make it to the NWBA oh and it weighs 4 and 3/4 lbs
