Shoe Turning hammer

Recommended Posts

One i made, started it about a year ago but picked up a fly press (screw press) recently and got her finished.

 

 

Made from BS1407 which i think you call Drill Rod in the states, we like our hammers hard!

 

It was meant to be 1 3/4 Lb but ended up at 1.41 lb which will do.

 

4" long head and 16" long shaft.

I'm planning on making a double sided square face sledge and the only thing I haven't got worked out is the heat treatment. I'll probably wind up using 1094 or 4140 if that helps. How did you go about heat treating each face?
