  1. I bought this hammer thinking it would be handy to keep close to the lathe. It has a copper alloy head on one end to knock a drive spur in. First time I used it the handle broke, dry rot?, but I thought I would put a handle on it someday. Someday is over a year later but it is here and I decided to make one. I thought this might be better done using offset turning and proceeded in that direction. Got a piece of Hard Maple and went to town on it. Couple hours later I had this. This picture doesn't show it but I made a nice tight fit for the h
  2. i haven't had this happen with any other similar hammers, so i called the company up today and they are going to send out a current "similar" model. I don't have the weight and the new ones don't have the metal on one end, but...
  3. I posted this elsewhere, but it's an interesting old hammer head. I got my hands on it right before it was going to the dumpster and pitched the handle since it was loose and cracked. Head is in nice shape and i'm going to re-handle this.
  4. 3 sales to check out this morning.....was batting 330....one sale had a few tools I like... $2.25 sitting there....What is so special about a small ball pean hammer? Well...it is made of Brass...haven't figured out the writing ( local Rail road at one time was known as the CCC& StL RR) ball end looked a bit abused.. That be a hole. Screwdriver might be an older stanley? Square shanked..fluted wood handle.. Not too bad a start to the season?
  5. Another summer just about in the books. School starts tomorrow and I already have a sub day scheduled. Please don't forget the deadline for The Patriot Woodworker raffle is coming up. Don't get left out!! Our Patriot Turners- The Patriot turners have been really busy in their shops this past week. Lots of great ideas and projects. @Gerald added a great tip to the Woodturners Forum. His idea for making/reusing material for faceplates is really cool! Gerald also showed us how he embellished the bottom of his ringm
  6. Found this hammer head at an estate sale and bought it for the novelty of it. I have this hammer and thought I may be able to share the handle with is and treat it as a kit. They both have 3/8" fine threads but the screw driver was too long for the new ball peen head. There is only 2" hollowed out in the stem so I decided to make a handle for it. I found this piece of brass from a candle stick I saved from a previous project. As luck would have it it had 3/8" fine threads already in the end of it. Stuff does go right
  7. I have this old brass Gray Canada mallet that belonged to a beloved older machinist we worked with. It has been given to a coworker for remembrance. it has no handle , I cannot find any illustration of it anywhere and hope somebody can help me to reproduce a handle for it and pit it back in service. Does anyone know what the handle should look like? image:3618 image:3619 image:3620 image:3621
  8. One of my sons-in-law has asked for "a good hammer" for a Christmas present. He does a lot of home remodeling and carpentry project (not so much cabinetmaking). I don't want to be spending $100+ for a titanium luxury hammer. "Something to hammer in and pull out nails," was his request. Force = mass x acceleration, you know. Most of my hammers I've had for 30 or 40 years and many of them are older than that, so I'm not current on the market. Any likes or dislikes with the brands out there? I have a 16 oz leather handle Estwing that I like but heard once some ca

    Just a Fun Image

    From the album: Big Ash Mallet

    Here is a fun picture showing the hand tools I used to help make this mallet, it took a combination of my table saw to make the slots, the shoulder plane to clean up the slots, the miter saw to cut the blanks at 5 degrees, and my hand tools to shape and make it interesting.
  10. Well, it IS a hand tool. had an old Cobbler's hammer. Handle that I made a while back...just was the right look. I had a piece of 1 x 2 White Oak. I had sharpened a couple drawknives a while back, and tested them out on that piece of oak. Kept looking for an old handle-less hammer.....then looked at the Cobbler's Hammer......hmmm. Drag out the drawknife again. Scrape off a bit near one end of the blank. Low angle block plane helped out. Got it close to a fit....chisel to adjust a bit. Got it to start...more chisel work....Finally it went almost all the way in.
  11. Last weekend Beth and I left out on Friday for Nashville, TN to do a little Picking. Here are a few of the items I was able to pick while we were out. I will go into detail about them each in another post. Just wanted to update you a bit with what I was able to fine. I ran across this old bench vise late in the day and I am glad I did as it is heavy and I wouldn't want to carry it. Thankfully I had a fold up buggy I could put things in. The vise is a Richards-Wilcox from Auroro, Ill. Had a great time and left some pieces I real
  12. That time of year again. Three towns and a quarter of another having sales! First town was the 1/4 town, since we were right in that town....meh, struck out. Boss found a few things, then a trip through the countryside.....again a strike out. Just missed a sander and belts.. Went on to the next town, as they had CHEAP Gas for the van! Three ring circus trying to get to an open pump, the pay before you pump, too. Tank's full, on to the sales! Found a small barn off the side of the road, an old Plumber was selling a few tools!!! Finally! Spent $2 ( he only want a dollar, g
  13. We have been cleaning up the shop the past few nights and so I laid out all the hammers. Some are old some are newer. The one on the far right is a Williams, early 1900's. And when you need a hammer, there is never one close!
