2. Tools and accessories

Main hammering tool is the hammer of various types.

Engineers’ hammer

The hammer head is made of tough tool steel with hardened and ground face (2) and pane (4).

Figure 3 Engineers’ hammer

The hammer handle (1) is made of strong and elastic wood and fixed to the hammer head by means of a cotter (3) in oblique position.

Different hammers are used, depending on the size of the workpiece and the purpose of use:

- Riveting hammer (50 g - 200 g),
used for smaller workpieces.

- Hand hammer (200 g - 400 g),
widely used for various fitting purposes.

- Bench hammer (400 g - 2000 g),
used for massive workpieces.

Special hammers for sheet metal working:

- Chasing hammer (250 g - 500 g),
ball face hammer for chasing of thin sheet metal.

Figure 4 Chasing hammer

Figure 5 Curving hammer

- Curving hammer (250 g - 750 g),
barrel face hammer for notchless curving of sheet metal strips.

- Finishing hammer (250 g - 500 g) and smoothing hammer (350 g - 1000 g),
flat or oval face hammers for planishing of faces.

- Wooden hammer (170 g - 500 g),
rubber and aluminium hammers:

Hammers not damaging the surface of the sheet metal during forming and straightening operations.

For special purposes, wooden hammers may be bevelled or radiused.

Hammering supports:

- Surface plates

Strong and flat cast-steel plates which are held by a stand or put on a work bench and are used for most hammering work.

Surface plates must not be damaged by chisel cuts!

- Blacksmiths’ anvil

Hardened support with face (2), round horn (1) and flat horn (3) for various forming and straightening operations.

- Letter set
Set of marking punches of all alphabetic letters.

- Figure set
Set of marking punches of the figures 0 - 9.
