Hand fabricated shop hammer

thor baby thor baby 1

I made this hammer with two different pieces of hardened tool steel. I cut both pieces down to size and weight desired. Then I beveled the hammer side of the handle in order to TIG weld the two pieces together. I added the bevel to the handle to allow complete penetration and ensure no matter what punishment this hammer takes, it won’t break. This is also an example of my Tig welding. Had a Miller Syncrowave 220 set at 220 Amps to get enough heat into the weld for it to hold. Man this thing was HOT when I was done welding it.
I also added a surface hardening weld material to the face of the hammer which makes it more impact and abrasion resistant.
