I just wanted to smack the end of my chisels with something I made, not bought. I had some left over oak and walnut 3/8” thick so I glued it up and began sanding. The handle is recessed into the acetal head about 3/4” deep. I used 2 screws to hold the head onto the handle and covered those screwws up with a thin piece of wood recessed into the top.

VERY NICE!! What are the dimensions and how much does it weigh? Oh and where did you get the material for the head?

Very nice hammer. Would also like to know where you got the head.

Keep it up.

John Gray & Scrappy, The mat’l for the head is acetal left over piece from work, Where we purchase from a local plastic supply. I work as a machinist and machine all type of mat’l including steels and stainless steels. Acetal is also known as Delrin. It is a little harder than UHMW and is more stable but tends to chip if not carefull when cutting it. The dia. of the hammer head is 2 -1/2 by 5” long. and the handle is 16” in length. Thanks for the commets.
