How to get a hammer that’s right for you
I met Eric at a workshop and he told me he was using a hammer with an adjustable grip.
I asked if it was adjustable and he said no.
He also said it was only available for hammermakers in his workshop.
I said ‘yes’ but didn’t tell him why.
I told him it was a tool he would want to buy, and that I would be happy to pay more for it.
Eric replied ‘yeah’ but it was more expensive than he was expecting.
I was in shock, but I decided to buy it anyway.
He has used it for more than 30 years, and he now uses it to cut and trim lumber.
Eric’s wife also uses a hammer and he has never had a problem with it.
It has also been the most convenient tool for me to cut wood for a couple of years, he said.
Eric’s hammer is a genuine ironworking hammer with a 3D-printed grip, he explained.
The company sells it online for about £10.
I emailed the company and asked if the hammer was made in the UK and if it had a 3DPrinting stamp on the headstock.
They said no, that it had been manufactured in Taiwan and that the hammer’s handle was made of aluminium and it was available in multiple colours.
I asked if they would look at what the hammer looked like in person and if there was a picture of Eric’s hammer, so I could get an idea of what it looked like on a hammer.
They replied: Yes, we have a video camera that we use to take a picture every time we use it, so we will try to get it soon.
Eric said the video camera was not set up to record videos, but he could see the video and it seemed clear that it was his hammer.
He explained that he did not want his wife to get sick when he used the hammer, as it was not meant for children, but also wanted to make sure she could use it as a work tool.
He explained that his wife used to work in the mines, and had to walk a long way for her job to get to the mines.
Eric explained that she was very happy when she saw the hammer and she said ‘that was a big help for me, I could now see a way to make my life easier’.
Eric also said he felt that his hammer was an important part of his life.
‘I don’t know if this hammer has made me happier or less happy in the past, but it has made the whole world a little better, he told the BBC.
‘It has given me a chance to look after my family and myself, and it has given us a good start to our life again.
It’s a wonderful gift, and I can’t wait to use it again.’
