New head for face hammer
« on: October 06, 2018, 05:53:07 PM »
Broke head of my soft face hammer. I thought it was half decent, because it was mid price model.

First I thought of ordering replacement head, but probably it would have been even worse and it is always a 3 weeks of wait.

First I measured the parts and they were funny dimenssions, not really metric or imperial. More like drawn to something, made close to nominal and then shrunk to something else. :lol:

Even the hread was something, that I took for 3/8" UNF, but when I took ti to fastener shop the owner said that it was probably just very undersize metric M10. Bought few M10 set screws. I turned and threaded piece of 30 mm POM and it has been taking some pounding allready, without breaking.

Took 9 mins. vs. 3 week wait and and about 2 worth of hole in the ozone layer.
