Introduction: Ball Pein Hammer Restoration
I was lucky enough to come across a rusty old Pien hammer head at a garage sale . i had bought a few other bits and pieces, so the kind gentleman had thrown this in for free ..Total cost nothing !! ...
It all started will a sanding disk on the grinder and a cut off wheel to true up the face , once that was done it was over to the drill press and worked my way up through the grids . finished off with a cutting compound to remove most of the fine scratches ... The handle was left over pieces of western cedar and Jarrah that were glue together . I decided to pimp up the handle by placing two steel pins down the middle , and was finished with a boiled linseed oil . I might add a coat of clear down the track ... More than likely the hammer will never be used , it will sit with all the other tools that i've restored and way down the track when i die they will probably be thrown out ... ha ha ha
We have a be nice policy.
