Designed by metalsmith and instructor Jay Whaley, this Whaley sliding hammer allows you to precisely move metal and is ideal for a variety of tasks, such as riveting, chasing, repoussé and stone setting. The slender, hollow head accommodates a long interchangeable punch that slides back and forth within the hammer, ensuring the punch and hammer are perfectly aligned on every each strike. The pivoting head and rotating punches make it easy to work at any angle the task at hand needs. A retaining screw allows the punches to be changed easily and quickly. The hammer head and punches are machined from hardened stainless steel; handle is made from finished rosewood. This hammer has an ergonomic handle that allows you to work longer and includes three punches, one with a flat end and two with round ends.
Three punches, 6-3/4"L x 5.25mm dia., one of each:
• Flat, 5.25 x 1.5mm tip
• Small round, 2.75mm dia. tip
• Large round, 3.75mm dia. tip
