Craftsman is updating its NEXTEC Hammerhead auto hammer, the first cordless nailer of its kind, with the soon to be announced G2 Hammerhead. I’m hoping that the new version delivers greater power and fewer vibrations! Read More
We talked a bit about Milwaukee’s new M12 cordless palm nailer last month, but its performance expectations have just been made available. Milwaukee claims that the palm nailer can drive a 16D 3-1/2” nail in under 2 seconds, and up to 100 nails per battery charge. That sounds pretty darn impressive – let’s hope that it can […]
Harry Epstein received a shipment of Vaughan factory seconds under the Grayvik label, and are holding a huge closeout sale. This includes hammers, pry bars, nail pullers and hatchets, all made in the USA. Jori, a Harry Epstein representative said on a forum that she looked at most of the stuff and the finishes are really […]
Recently I heard accounts that made-in-Taiwan Estwing tools have been hitting the shelves at Home Depot. Worried that this indicated a shift in Estwing’s core USA-manufacturing ideals, I contacted them about this. Their response was very relieving:
As part of my shop rebuild, I have been researching and buying several new hand tools for quick use, like my go-to screwdrivers. These tools are intended to be hung on a pegboard for easy access and will be used to perform a variety of tasks, quickly and efficiently. My latest tool acquisition is a Beta shop hammer. […]
Jackson’s Pulverizer is primarily a concrete demolition tool, but it’s multi-purpose enough to use for general demo work. The Pulverizer is 12.8″ long with a 1-1/2″ strike face and hefty 3-1/2 lb total weight. It also features a wedge for ripping through drywall, claw teeth for gripping and prying, a 2-inch scraper with large nail-puller head, […]

Home Depot is having a “Spring Cyber Monday” online-only sale today. As part of their sale, Home Depot is selling Ryobi’s Auto Hammer for an obscenely low $20.

Wera’s new Koloss 1/2″ drive hammer ratchet has finally arrived! I received a sample from ChadsToolbox that I’m currently testing, but I just couldn’t wait that long to post some teaser pics of it. Check out the gallery at the end of this post!
Wera has recently announced the Koloss, a new heavy duty 1/2″ drive addition to their lineup of innovative ratchets. Even stranger in appearance than Wera’s swivel-head Zyklop ratchet, the Koloss features a ratchet built into a hammer head. Yes, that’s right, the Koloss is a real ratchet-hammer combo tool that is said to be unbreakable.
I spotted this tiny non-marring hammer over at a recent Woodworking show. With dime-sized replaceable brass and plastic heads, this hammer is most likely used for precision tool setup or maintenance, unless there are other woodworking applications that I’m not yet aware of.
Reader JD was kind enough to share a very detailed review of a recently purchased 8oz brass American Hammer with us. If you recall, American Hammer is currently holding a direct-sales promotion and has heavily discounted many of their hammers.
We’ve been hearing some good feedback about the American Hammer deal we recently posted about, so we figured an update/reminder was in order. During this promotion, American Hammer is offering direct sales at an incredible discount – $25 (shipped!) for any style non-marring hammer under 2 lbs.
American Hammer is offering an incredible deal right now with an interesting catch. If you promise to write an unbiased and honest review of your purchase, American Hammer will sell you any brass, bronze, or copper hammer under 2 pounds for $25, and that includes shipping fees. If you’re in the market for a metal non-marring hammer, […]
Ryobi’s cordless Auto Hammer is designed to drive nails up to 3-1/2″ long, operate in tight spaces, and eliminate manual hammering entirely. In fact, Ryobi claims that with their new Auto Hammer, hammering has never been easier. With claims like these, we just had to put the tool to the test! For a detailed overview of […]
The first user reviews of the Paulding Hammer have started pouring in. Here is what Sam S. shared with us via a comment about The Hammer: I purchased one of the pre-production models of this hammer from Paulding and consider it the finest of my tools, and I have no light weight assembly of tools… […]
The Hammer, designed and crafted by John Paulding, is by far one of the most magnificent tools that we have ever laid our eyes upon. Still, merely describing The Hammer as a machinists hammer, as exemplary as it is, would never do it justice. Not just a tool, The Hammer is a work of art!
