Yesterday I was working in the studio on several projects and thinking about what I could do for today’s Tool Time Tuesday. As I was working on the pieces, I happened to be texturing them with a couple of the hammers I own, and thought it would be a great post.
Mr. Miland has passed away and his tools are no longer available. 🙁
This hammer has a diamond cross hatch and star pattern. The diamond pattern is one of my favorites. I don’t care so much for the effort it takes for the star pattern, but it still works.Each of the above hammers run approximately $20 plus shipping.
This last hammer has 9 interchangeable heads. It features most of the patterns of the above 3 hammers. The patterns that are duplicated tend to be a little smaller in scale.
This hammer runs about $44, plus shipping.So how do they compare? Well check out my YouTube video:
My thanks to my friend Robyn Hawk for loaning me the Miland tools. Be sure to check out some of Robyn’s blogs. She is prolific when it comes to the jewelry industry.
For all of those that will be traveling to be with family and friends this week, safe travels. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone.
