Did you really make that??
It's not Jen's husband is it Craigerrr???
Yup, with the instruction of a young fellow named Ethan Harty. We started with a piece of bar like this but I forgot to take a picture before we punched a hole in it.
This is after we finished the shaping but before the grinding and heat treating.
I like your maker's mark imprint, that's awesome!
I think it's a little over detailed for the size but it works pretty good and is very distinctive. I need to put a handle on the stamp so I stop smacking my fingers while I try to hit it.
Also, I've been sore for 2 days now after swinging a 13lb sledge for hours.
Best way to work out
Kinda puts the dog in the pound if ya know what I mean...
And hitting you fingers too? Lol
It hurts but it is good for you.
Honestly Jason, that looks like you just bought it at the hardware store! Good Job!
Thanks! I have a bad habit of second guessing myself and trying for perfection which I'm slowly breaking myself of. I think I'm going to buy a couple tools to make it so I can make another hammer at home and try it on my own. Will have to use a smaller hammer but should still be educational.
Um, don't you need a hammer to make a hammer?
Well that or a big rock I suppose.
Don't use force, get a bigger hammer.
I cant resist, Hawkbox the force will now be with you always
When I worked in strip mines, the phrase was if it doesn't fit, get a bigger hammer.
My biggest hammer is 16lb on the stamp on it, it's bloody heavy and fun to control.
similar to my motto. "if at first you don't succeed, you need a bigger hammer"
