Hammers & Mallets
Hammers are generally used to drive fasteners or break up materials. They are available in a variety of weights and lengths, depending on the purpose: heavier hammers are designed for jobs like framing decking and roofing, while smaller hammers are used for trim and finish work. Mallets, on the other hand, are typically used to shape materials like copper, leather and sheet metal. They are also used in carpentry and engineering to tap delicate pieces into alignment.
