Interesting to see tools we recognize immediately.  The tool with the hole in the head may be some sort of set or monkey tool, IMO, rather than a striking hammer.  If you go to the video on you tube there are a lot of interesting comments that you don't see on the link.  A lot of armoring tools, particularly the hammers, are similar to auto body tools.

Thanks for posting.
