If I had a hammer!!

So my old mooring hammer, which I found after I lost one bought me by Bones, was in bad need of a new handle. I went to the DIY sheds to get one. In each store it was the same story, “No sorry Sir we only have complete hammers! I found this a bit odd coming from one DIY store let alone several. The handle was buggas and I needed a new one. I kinda thought I would like to do it myself. Well you would, wouldn’t you.

After a few weeks of trying to find one I resigned myself to purchasing a new hammer. This one I bought from Wicks for a tenner. (Note the longer than usual handle.)

It was when I got to Nuneaton I found the Tool Store. The Tool Store is a marvellous emporium of all things DIY. If you have never been there you must go its fab. There is another one in Atherstone. Anyway I found an ash handle to fit my hammer head. It was only this week that I got around to fitting it.

Well it would be a shame not to make it look like a really professional job so after I hammered in the metal wedge I finished the end like the professionals do.

Of course I didn’t use the same stuff, but PVA with a coat of varnish does the job. Now I have two Mooring hammers.

If you like the look of the shop bought one with the glass fibre handle, but don’t like the long handle they do a shorter one for only seven quid.

Just don't do what the Cabin Boy did and let go of the hammer while putting the pins in. It sank to the bottom of the canal and refused to come back out after much fishing about with the magnet.
Nice pair of hammers btw!

Hate to say it but it looks like you have put the head on upside down

Is the big one a seven pounder (weight, not currency)

Maffi said...

David I chose to put it on that way up.

Bones no a 4 pounder.

Club hammer shaft holes are of larger bore at the top in order that the wedge expands the shaft, so the head is tightly secured. It's something to consider, as flying hammer heads have minds of their own.

Cordially,
