4 New handles, 2 new heads, what's left of the original....memories?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.
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.
It's a framing hammer. The handle looks a little thick to me to be comfortable. In the shop I prefer to use a 12" claw hammer that used to be my mothers.
This is the thread you were looking for:There was a post, a few days ago, where some member turned a "carver's hammer"?
You can be sued for hitting someone on the head with it.I still don't know what they're sued for, exactly, so I might never actually hit anything with it.
