Heh, while I was digging through and sorting out a bunch of shit to get rid of out in the garage, I ran across this little jewel I had forgotten about.
I snagged it off Fleabay earlier this year for a whopping $8 plus some for shipping. In case you think that was a bit much I suggest you take a minute and go see what some of these people are asking for a damn Sledge Hammer head anymore these days.
Even cheap Chinesium units at the Big Box stores are running close to $40 anymore.
Anyway, I decided I needed to do something with it since I also found the new handle I had bought for it too.
Pounded out the remnants of the old handle they had sawed off to ship it and then about an hour on the belt sander. After it cooled off enough to be able to hold on to it again then some finishing with an Angle grinder with a Flap Wheel on it and I finally got it cleaned up some. It was a rusty mess.
Then the new handle, cut it down to suit my needs and also because it had a weird bend in it, then oiled it up and it was ready to join the force.
All because late last year as I was digging through my tool boxes looking for a decent sized hammer to smack something with, I came to the realization that out of the at least fifteen hammers I own, I didn’t have anything bigger than a two pounder.
Fuck that, sometimes you need a real Persuader.
