Hammer making & Striking instructional DVD
Instructor: Patrick Quinn
This DVD covers all the steps involved in making a 2.25 lb-straight peen hammer. Using 1045 grade steel, Pat punches and drifts the hole, and forges the cheeks and peen. The majority of the work will be done with sledge-hammers and strikers; focus will be placed on proper striking technique. "Striking" is done with a team of two; one to hold the piece and a tool, the other to "strike" with a sledge hammer.
After the hammer is forged, all heat-treating steps will be covered, including hardening, tempering, and finishing (polishing the faces). Handle making will also be covered.
Here from Pat about the type of steel he uses for his tools and why he uses particular alloys and techniques. This DVD is jam packed with info about the hammer making process and has a lot to offer even the most experienced smith.
