>>1661987>be me>be americanThe Fatmax, obviously. Funny thing is that's the exact hammer I already have and I quite like it.
I've been framing houses for 20 years and still have the estwing framing hammer I bought when I started.
>>1661987Ayy ive had that fatmax for 5 more than 5 years and its been fine. Im a finisher and literally all i use it for is for tapping miters level and breaking off drywall around windows and doors sometimes.
My proto body hammer
>>1661987Wood handle hammer with a different hammer head on each end.Two hammers taped together.A claw hammer that has a ball peen and a cross peen instead of cheeks
>>1661987I like my estwing, plus it was made in the usa so thats nice too
>>1662055What is this?
>>1661987Those aren't hammers. This is a hammer
Brand not really important, just this style of hammer
>>1661987Mjolnir. There's no other choice. It can even bring dead goats back to life.
>>1661987>One Hammer rest of your life.Oh, fuck you, I don't live in a Commie shithole where this is even feasible. I'll fucking go out and buy an Assault Hammer-15 right now and you can't stop me.
>>1661987I use those Estwings. Small one for belt, wrecking, nails, tapping stuff. Big one for driving sinkers.
Estwing for sure, but I prefer the ones with the leather handle
>>1662204you need a license for that anon
>>1662159>$200+ for a hammerThere are idiots that will actually buy this.
>>1662175This is the one and only hammer Style that is good for Everything
>>1662259>Makes a purchase from a private citizen who wants to sell his AH-15Psssh, nothing personal, Government Loophole.
>>1662267I wondered if you could sell guns privately an legal in mutt
>>1661987Hammer time right
>>1662120Hammer for mosaic working
>>1662263They'll go on ad nauseam about why all their tools are better even if it's circular logic. I think some people have a physical need to give their money away and huff their own farts.
>>1662267>Government Loophole.didn't mention the Hammer-Show loophole
>>1661996>>1661987>>1662032>be american not getting estwing
>>1662297Of course, why wouldn't you be able to?
>>1662048Based Field Geologist
Estwing master race
>living with just one hammerImpossible. Hell I need at least one claw and a maul. Not.to mention my.brick hammer which I can use a claw for but why sub when you got the real deal
>>1662266It doesn't remove nails, but the Chad wielder doesn't worry about removing nails.
>>1662416does that hammer have screwdrivers inside it's handle? what in the fuck
>>1662159>15 ouncelmao>>1662424YeaIt's pretty handy
>picking anything other than estwing
>>1662418>>1662175You can use this to forge other hammers.
>unironically using materials other than wood for framing hammer handles
I have a literal $1 hammer I bought at Wal-Mart in 1993, should last me forever.
>>1662159This guy's retarded font is bothering me.
>>166215915oz...Are you buying this for your wife's son? Did lil DeShawn finally turn 13 and get out of juvie?
Been using this hammer for about a year. Never liked the way any other hammer felt after this
Dollar store hammer master race
>>1662649It's a titanium casting and insanely expensive.
>>166198720oz, ripclaw Estwings will outlive you and are versatile enough for most of what youd need to use it for.Its a good hammer.
>>1661987>>1662159>>1662829How often do you ACTUALLY pull out nails with a hammer?>>1662175based
>>1662555I’m set on my 4lb HF hammer>Made in IndiaWalmart unironically has decent hammers and pry bars from their Hyper Tough brand.
Estwing with a sanded leather handle for when your hands get wet. they're relatively cheap and hard to ruin
>>1662986No they don't.
>>1663029Check out the Hyper Tough pry bars. The ones sold individually. I guarantee they’re made by a company who manufactures the same thing for a big name brand that costs way more than $9.84
>>1662829I got the hatchet with the leather handle. I didn't like the lacquered feel on it so I sanded it back to bare leather and rubbed a heap of paraffin wax/ leather softener into it. Much better grip. When it starts to dry out a bit I put more wax crap on it. We call the wax crap 'dubbin' in Straya, not actually sure what the ingredients are.
>>1662159>not using a 1 kilometer long hammer
Would last the rest of your life...
>>1662159Memes aside why the hell would anyone want a titanium hammer? Doesn't that defeat the point? Maybe not as magnetic?
Did anybody say, "The one in my pants?"
Husky no doubt bout it100%
>>1663210Titanium is really bouncy. Supposedly those hammers drive nails like much heavier steel hammers, so the lighter weight reduces fatigue and impact-related chronic injuries. Supposedly worth it if you use a framing hammer professionally, and they manage to sell at those prices.
>>1661987Stiletto (titanium hammer)
This works well enough for now
>>1663433Maybe, but a wood replacement handle from a hardware store would have been better. A heavy handle transfers shock to your hand instead of the thing you're hammering.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_of_percussion
>>1662649>>1662427>>1663210>/diy/>somehow retards don't understand basic physics titanium is as strong as steel and weighs half as much, a titanium hammer that is lighter can be swung faster than a heavier steel one and drive the nail as effectively as the heavier one while causing less fatigue to the user.
the Original Bob Hart California Framer hammer that is sadly no longer available after Vaugh bought them out and raped them.the hammers under the Hart name now are just worthless chinese travesties. mine is a Vanadium Steel smooth face 22 oz. head the shtick to Vanadium Steel is that it won't strike a spark when hitting other ferrous things... like nails.
>>1663479...except that doesn't matter when the entire point of a hammer is that is has sufficient mass to drive the nail. The head HAS to be somewhat heavy in order to be effective. Before you point out the "b-but muh velocity..." argument, consider that you could simply make a normal steel hammer smaller to achieve the same weight savings as one that's less dense, AND you wouldn't look like a retarded engineer as a bonus.While, yes, technically the weight of the handle is "wasted", in the sense that it doesn't contribute to driving force as much as the head, it's not a huge difference. Even if you consider it to be one, then you should be going for a composite handle, which is both lighter and absorbs shock better than titanium.Tl;dr: Titanium hammer is a marketing gimmick, and an outright waste of money.
>>1663498MV^2Velocity matters more for kinetic energy. Pussy.
>>1663508>Velocity matters more for kinetic energy. Pussy.>>1663498>Before you point out the "b-but muh velocity..." argument, consider that you could simply make a normal steel hammer smaller to achieve the same weight savings as one that's less dense, AND you wouldn't look like a retarded engineer as a bonus.>TFW you can't even read
>>1663498Nah, I've had all of the typical framing hammers. The titanium handles are fucking great. The amount of shock absorbed is great, you can still move walls, drive nails and anything else a normal hammer can do. They DO make steel hammers that are lighter but most are on thin welded steel handles, that will destroy your elbow.If you can't move a wall with a toe nail and swinging faster, you need a fucking sledge hammer anyways. >lrn to leverage you fucking pleb.
>>1663498>just make it smaller lmao>reduce volume by half>make the face to be smaller in diameter, causing it to be more difficult to hit the nail>decrease the size of the eyelet, causing the wooden handle going into the socket to become much smaller, drastically effecting durability>claw is reduced in size as well as the overall length of the head, causing it to be more difficult to remove nails or move boards>head is still weaker because titanium is 45% stronger by mass compared to steel>to save maybe $60 over a regular 20ish ounce California framer If someone makes a living off framing, how the fuck do you think saving $60 somehow outweighs less fatigue on the body?
>>1663515>>1663498Weight is not the primary factor in swing velocity, its handle length and how far you are choked up on it.
>>1661987I agree with OP, the dirty fucking one
>>1662159Company started in America, by an inventor who basically stole or purchased an older no longer used brand name. After doing a huge number of videos showing the hammers and explaining hiw ghey were American made, He sells the brand to a Chink company, which ships production to China, but still charges the same amount for the hammers.
>>1665445>by an inventor who basically stole or purchased an older no longer used brand name.He used to work for them, started his own company and then was funded and bought out by them.
>>1662348it's worth it only if you're a career carpenter who uses his hammer on a daily basis, these low weight titanium hammers hit as hard as a 22+oz'er and sill save you from tennis elbow which can impair you from working and cost over 200 in a day anyways.
>>1665690nothing beats a stitelleto, but Is go with a dewalt or estwing unless im old or get one as a gift.
I’ve been using this one 4 years now
>>1662348>>1662263Yeah, just use a rock or something.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vujo2R6TwSs
I had a hammer....
>>1662416That little fubar is useless. You gotta get the big one to make it worth while
>>1665698Your parties must be terrible with that kind of vibe
If we're basing this off which hammer gets used the most then its you and me ole girl
>>1665806Which? The maul? I've got a 3 and 4 in estwingI've got aged 6 8 and 10 on maul handles and several 20lb regulars as well as a beast of a bastard at 24lbs and one with a handle cut to 14 inches I use for driving pinsI'll get a full collection pic tomorrow. I have to see what I need to replace anyway, handles need to be checked
>>1662341The what now?
>>1662044>monotool>has a hammer and nail puller
>>1662159high speed low drag
>>1661987you go to an auction and buy the old ass hammer from somebodies grandpa's collectionaka the one you know will last a life time 'cuz it already has
>>1662005You have to go back, Juan.
>>1661987hatchet handled california framer for me
>>1667056>the one you know will last a life time 'cuz it already hasTwo new heads and three new handles. It's a great hammer.
