    Welding Chipping Hammer Stainless Steel



    Welding Chipping Hammer Stainless Steel

    Dimensions
    Blade 190x40mm
    Shaft 10.5x155mm (at reality 10.47mm)
    Handhold 18x115mm Including the corian ring (105+10mm)

    All materials are stainless steel
    Round bar: 10.5x185mm - 18x105mm
    Flat bar or sheet metal strip: 45x200x4.3mm (Final thickness after cleaning and polishing about 4mm)
    Bolts: 1pcs M4x10mm - 1pcs M5x20mm
    Electrodes: E316L

    Corian: 30x50x12mm

    I designed the blade, printed it in natural size and stuck over the blade.
    With a fine punch I marked the centers of the contour nodes and drew the lines using a pencil scribe.
    For the marking of the two curves I used a 10 cent euro coin (dia 19.75mm).
    I did the cuts with an angle grinder and refine them using a file.
    By a die grinder I refined the curves using 20mm consumables.
    By a belt grinder I machined the faces of the blade removing all scratches and marks.
    At the end it polished at an abrasive polishing machine.
    I havent a lathe, so the drilling at the drill press is one way root for me.
    But isnt a so difficult job, neither a so critical If the center point of the hole isnt 100% at the real center of the 18 axle.
    So I set up a device with any I had on hands at the drill press bed.
    Using my Circle Center Finder Tool I found the center of the axle.
    All the rest it was just a matter of perpendicularity and securing.
    I decided to make the hole 10mm and not 10.5mm because in fact it would definitely be a little bigger maybe 10.65 ~ 10.8mm.
    Also one of my 10mm drill bits it was a short one and I thinking and less vibration.
    Ι started with 4mm drill bit next 7mm and last 10mm.
    Finally the hole was done 10.12mm.
    Using the drill press and a file, I machined the one end of 10.5mm axle, to 10.1mm.
    I don't want to weld the two pieces together, so to be able to change the rings if damaged for some reason.
    Also I have into my mind to replace them at a later time with brass or copper made rings.
    I cut to length the two axels according to my needs.
    Shaft 10.5x155mm - Handhold 18x105mm.
    At the 10.5mm axle at the top of the shaft I made a 4mm notch where the blade will be placed. Using a screw I secured the blade to the shaft. Tack welds the blade with the shaft and took out the screw. Completed the welds and filled the hole that I had made for the screw.
    I put the shaft in the Handhold and made an 3.3mm hole without digging out the opposite side. On the shaft I threaded M4 thread and on the handle I increased the hole from 3.3mm to 4mm. In the center of the lower part of the Handhold I made a hole 4.2mm and threaded M5 thread.
    From a Corian piece using a hole saw 22mm I cut two pieces for the rings.
    Using the drill press, I machined the two pieces and make them rings.

    That's a good design. You can reach internal corners with it too. Mine is nearly similar. When "axe" head is sharpened well, it also removes splatters really nicely.

    Hi Tuomas
    Glad that you like it. I will be happy to see yours design but couldn't find it.
    If you have a photo or a YouTube link I will appreciate if you post it here.
    I like to see the way that other guys have follow for similar projects but only when I have already finished.
    I don’t like copy paste.
    I feel like the worker that makes the same repeatable job each day every week/month and so on.

    I haven't posted pictures from it before.
    Mine is made from steel, and looks that it needs some re-sharpening.

    I had a magnet for it on my stick welding caddy where i store it.

    Not exactly similar, but same shape that works inside corners too.

    Thanks for the photos.
    Yes it is almost the same design.
    Both are based at the arrow shape.
    With my old hammer the problems it was always at the inner corners.
