rebuilding my Bradley 40lb helve hammer in Tools and Tool Making Posted October 29, 2010 WOOHOO!!!! Look what I got: My friend finally got the chance to turn the cushions to the taper I needed, and here's a picture of one! He made 5 of them for me (one spare), and now I've really got to get moving on the helve - man, I wish it wasn't so busy at work! The notches are due to the fact that they had an existing mould that they used for this project, and I can't imagine it affecting the performance of the hammer. If these work out for this project, I'll find out if they'd be willing to manufacture these for other folks. MANY MANY thanks to Joe Divissich and the crew at Apple Rubber products - this project would likely have been permanently hung up if it wasn't for these guys!
