The other day I received my new Bad Ass Nice Ash. What a beauty. Just as advertised. Then I needed to adjust it all I had was a 5 oz. ball peen, a framing hammer and a major wood adjuster. None of those worked. The ball peen came the closest but the metal just had too much force.
So I decided to embark on making some wooden mallets to adjust the small beast. Below are some pic’s of the fun I had making tools to adjust the new tool.
The smallest is the best for very small adjustments. Next size up is also good. The others are best for chisels and such. But I had a lot of fun making them. All heads are cherry 8/4 stock tapered to look good. Handles are cherry on the smallest, oak the rest. I use mortice and tenon construction and the rivets are square copper nails with roves on each side. All in all a fun project.
The ruler on the bench is 12” long, just for scale.
