Working with Hands - James E. Price


Old Hammers

2 of 3  

My next mission is to make a replacement handle for this strapped hammer head.
The top specimen is an original period hammer with an original handle in it.

The handle for the strapped hammer head will be copied from one of these
engravings illustrated in Ken Roberts' book, "Tools For The Trades And Crafts", 1976.

This photo shows the boxwood handle in the strapped hammer head
prior to putting a pin through the straps to capture the head.

This is a close up of the curved facet on the end of the boxwood handle.

The handle has a tenon on its end that is captured in a mortise
in the back of the hammer head.
