no previous part Part 1 of Small Brass Hammers series Part 2: An update and construction details »

I’ve decided to try out this video thing. This is my first and it is very basic. It just shows my intent with making these small brass hammers. These will be used for adjusting plane blades mainly. I may add a wood side on one end at a later date. Hope this comes out okay cause I plan to do many more.

Thanks for watching.

Very nice hammers. I may have to “liberate” these to make my own.

Very nice hammer. As for the video I wish you explained how you made it and maybe even provided action scenes for more detail. Keep them coming.

matt... If I give away too much info, they are worthless!
ralph … didn’t know you were on here… I plan on selling them yes. But only if they sell. Gotta find the right price point and place to sell. We’ll see.

@Luke—What is the hammer’s weight? Nice clean, simple lines.

My personal opinion is to do away with the cross pin through the head. What I have done on the few I have made is to use a wedge in the handle end. The thing about a peened cross pin like that is that unless you get it sanded down to where you can’t see it, it is a big distraction, in my opinion. I recognize this is a prototype and I only offer my opinion as constructive feedback.
