I purchased a HNT Gordon Radius plane on Sunday and as this is my first wood body plane I realised I needed an appropriate adjustment hammer/mallet.
I made this brass and Walnut mallet on Monday and it works great.
Mallet weights 213g or approx 7.5oz.
Brass head milled and turned fron some hex stock. Walnut head piece turned on the metal lathe (don’t have a wood lathe) and fitted on a stainless threaded stud so is easily replaceable. Walnut handle quickly shaped by hand using a spokeshave and rounding done with a fine rasp.
Finish is just some cabinet makers wax.
