Copper Hammer
« on: July 11, 2013, 02:54:26 PM »
I bought an old 5lb copper hammer at a garage sale the other day for $2.  Now my question is; what am I going to do with it?  Ideas?

sounds like a very nice soft face hammer to me,  wont ding other metals if you have to drive out rivets or pins ( or drive em in)  you normally see brass in a mechanics tool box for that but copper would work.  sounds like a nice score
vegetarian???  isn't green stuff for growing meat?

My old man has one.   Only use it on soft material.  Cool to look at.

If it's small it's to not mar steel when you use it.  If it's large it's probably to avoid sparks in a flammable environment.  You can always hang it on the wall...

That was a great deal. Last I looked, scrap copper was around $4 a pound. 5 x $4 = $20.
