I haven't used a hammer in my shop in probably a year. Wood mallets where it's at.

The tools don't make the craftsman....

I built an 8' X 10' garden shed a few years ago, just for fun the challenge was to do it without the use of a hammer, I did end up using a hammer to install the asphalt shingles, could have bought a nail gun but decided it was not worth it.

I am using my grandfathers hammer, it is 100 years old, handle has been replaced four times, head twice. :)

4 New handles, 2 new heads, what's left of the original....memories?

We should have a contest.
Who has the most hammers and photo evidence only.
Mallets are a separate category.
Sledges over 4 lbs are not allowed.
Anyone interested?
First prize is ....

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Yaa for hammers! I still have four that I used in the trade for over 40 years. One Estwing with leather handle and the others have wood handles. Still use them daily.

What's the prize for this contest? Since we can't count sledges, I'll go ahead and state that beyond a four pounder, I have, and they do get used, 6,8,10,12,and 20-doesn't include stone working heavy cutters, just regular sledge hammers. I'm assuming this is just for carpenter hammers, and doesn't include metal working, stone work, or blacksmithing.

I have some really old hammers, but even though it's newer, my coolest hammer to me is a little used, three pound stone cutter with WPA stamped on it.

My idea is that it should include metal working hammers, tin bangers and body hammers, upholstery tackers, crate openers, combo hammer/prybars, any hammer with a metal head, no plastic.
It will be cool to see all the brands, like say Estwing, Plumb, Stanley, Vaughn, etc.....
This is not my thread so feel free to ignore me. Not wanting to hijack it. BTW that's a beauty, that Dalluge!

Just when I thought I had some hammers.....

I have a few eastwigs of course, a 3 lb one piece sledge from Home Depot husky brand I love, but most of mine after that is all harbor freight and tool dead blows and hammers of all types from there they are extremely cheap and last for me anyway
