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

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

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

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.
