Brass Hammer Heads
When I made a batch of chisel hammers recently I asked if anyone knew of an easier way to shape the heads and someone did, by CNC. I ordered a batch of 100 and they arrived today, I'm not going to miss all that shaping!
The finish was good enough to use but I'll still probably buff them to a shine.
Below is the door for my wall mounted tool chest going through my new wide belt sander. It was a bit wider than the 18" capacity so it had to be reversed, it wasn't perfectly level so I need to adjust it, but it was a pleasure to see no hint of burning.
I'm writing an article on the tool chest for F&C magazine so I can't show too much on the making. The shot below shows the lid being cut off on the table saw, nerve racking stuff especially after so much work!
All went well.
