Brass hammer DIY plane hammer
When LN can make one, then I can also!
So what do you do when you are 100$ short…
Make one of course!
So First some thinking, does it have to look like LN’s version – NO.
So what do I need?
A flat side, and a round, hmmmmmmm, Japan meets the west!
So the rest is just a piece of brass – time and patience on a supersander
1. Long pipe and long hammer.
2. The head.
3. The head on its way, and behind the piece of scrap brass it came from.
5. Supersander and polish with a cord drill, and a plastic bucket as wac.
6. A piece of scrap wood becoming the handle.
I decided to do the handle all by hand also, so it was shaped on the supersander after I cut it on the table saw.
This might look difficult, but trust me it was not, it took app two hours, and now I have a wonderful unique brass hammer.
Hope it can be to some inspiration, perhaps even some plane hammers,
Happy newyear to all of you.
