Iron Solid and Split-Head Hammers

The Hammer Source has two types of Iron Hammers with soft faces:

1. Solid Iron head with inserted soft faces.  
2. Split-Head
hammers with easily replaceable soft faces.

Solid Iron Head Hammers with Soft Faces

The Vaughan CR150 (Thor 03-212) is the hammer commonly used for knock-off wheels.

The added weight of the iron head gives greater force while the soft faces prevent damages to your work. Consider our Split Head hammers if you need a quick change hammer.

Split-Head Hammers have three styles:

Thor (UK)-2 allen Bolts through the side of the head 
Malleable Iron heads feature quick change faces and handles using an allen wrench.
Uniform clamping pressure assures face and handle retention. 
Thor Split-head hammers come with rawide faces.
Replacement faces are sold individually, not as pairs.
Copper, aluminum and plastic faces are also available separately.

Halder (Germany)
Steel heads with quick change heads and either wood or steel handles.
White nylon replacement faces are sold individually, not as pairs.

Garland (USA)- Locking Nut on bottom of hammer head, tighten with Pipe wrench.
Iron heads securely lock replaceable faces in place with nut at the base of the head (I use a Pipe wrench).
Hickory handle is secured with wedge and pin to the head. 
Hammers are available with rawhide, nylon, urethane, GarDur plastic, all sold separately.

Hardness comparisons of synthetic faces can be found on the Hardness Comparison page.
