update on the home-made hammer. I used this sucker for about 2 years before the hammer I had fabbed up broke. I ended up getting one of the purpose built units. I think it is called the "equalizer" us made job and I'd say it works better but it was also +300 dollars compared to my home made one that cost me about $50.00.

One other thing is to wear ear protection weather you use a power hammer or a hand one. I've noticed some of the older guys have a hard time hearing and they tell me it's from years banging tin. Be safe and productive. A quote from Ben Franklin that was out on the sign at North Tech where I took my apprenticeship: " He who hath a trade Hath an Estate."
