Homemade Raising Hammer

Raising Hammer
126 Best Homemade Lathe Accessories
Steve Shelby on
Homemade raising hammer adapted from a vintage blacksmith's hammer. The 2-pound original was reshaped with an angle grinder and smoothed on a belt sander, resulting in a 21 ounce tool. A burned-oil finish was applied and the antique hickory handle retained.
