These are the hammers and mallets I use on a regular basis in my shop.
Though the hammer has basically evolved from a rock to a rock on a stick, it would almost make sense to only have one or two hammers. But, I own lots of different hammers. As far as my woodworking goes I use about 10, pictured to the left.
Everything from different dead blow mallets, the basic 16 oz claw hammer, purple heart plane adjustment hammer, and my carpenters mallet, I own and use many different types.
Now , this doesn't include sledgehammers, ball peen hammers, metal working hammers, framing hammers and all the others I own.
So, my question to you is: How many hammers do you use in your woodworking shop?
