TLA - 2CN Types Ball-peen hammer The original function of the hammer was to peen riveted or welded material, which makes it as flexible as the surrounding metal. Today, the ball end of the hammer is used to cut gaskets, expand and shape the free end of copper roves, light rivets, and "set" rivets (which completes the joint). The cross peen hammers are designed for striking unhardened materials. The peen head allows for the shaping or bending or unhardened materials. The drop-forged heads are made from alloy steel. The heads are heat treated and tempered for strength and durability. These hammers are available in either a hickory or a premium wood handle. Cross Peen Hammer A type of handheld hammer used for forming sheet metal. One end of the head is round and has a flat face. The other end is wedge-shaped, with the apex (peak) of the wedge parallel to the handle. A claw hammer is a tool primarily used for pounding nails into, or extracting nails from, some other object. Generally, a claw hammer is associated with woodworking but is not limited to use with wood products. It is not suitable for heavy hammering on metal surfaces (such as in machining work), as the steel of its head is somewhat brittle; the ball-peen hammer is more suitable for such metalwork. A sledgehammer is a tool with a large, flat head attached to a lever (or handle). The head is typically made of metal. The sledgehammer can apply more force than other hammers, due to its large size. Along with the mallet, it shares the ability to distribute force over a wide area. This is in contrast to other types of hammer, which concentrate force in a relatively small area. Hammer A mallet is a kind of hammer, usually of rubber, or sometimes wood smaller than a maul or beetle and usually with a relatively large head. Hammer Mallets Claw Sledge Hammer Types:
