Selected User Reviews For Estwing Ball Peen Hammer - 16 oz Metalworking Tool with Forged Steel Construction & Shock Reduction Grip - E3-16BP , Blue
A number of people have given this hammer rave reviews. The fact that this should have been a red flag, but I thought I might have found a solid, american-made product A tool that has been made. I would be interested to know how many of these reviews are genuine. Estwing should be ashamed if this tool is truly made in the USA. There are two major points to note *Brief description here Unlike the round head of a peen, the head of a peen is not circular. The machine was obliviously machined, cut and left unfinished. It's supposed to be round. There is a result of a spiral, uneven head that results in irregular points and notches when you cut. Neither the shape nor detail work can be accomplished with this tool. 1. *br. The steel used in this hammer is said to be forged. This is steel. After using the hammer for the first time to hammer copper rivets, the copper not only damaged the finish, but it also cut a hole in the head and damaged it. It is tragic. Sadly (see picture included) I have to return this hammer and will have to look for another. I even had a chinesium that performed this poorly.
My only complaint is that the metal surfaces are covered with an overly thick layer of clear coat. While they look great, the clear coat on the hammer is prone to scratches and dents. Although I have tried removing it with acetone and abrasives, I haven't had much success. This is simply a cosmetic issue that will be corrected as I use the hammer over time. I would fully expect that the hammer will last forever.
There are several small details on this hammer that seem off. It is highly polished, though a lot of details are off. Firstly, there is roughness and unrefinedness in the handle, there are chips in the metal on the neck, and most importantly, there must be a ball on the back of the head if it is to be called a ball peen hammer. I'm returning this item and trying to find another since the hammer is useless as a ball peen hammer since it will cut the material leaving a line behind. I will be returning this item and trying to find another. A second one will be delivered after I receive the first Here are the pictures I attached as proof of all the problems.
I am very pleased with this brand. It has a great balance, allowing you to knock your tin with a decent amount of control and at the same time letting you see it. All of my Estwing hammers are in great shape and I'm pleased with each one.
You must look no further than this hammer if you want one of the best hammers around. I have an Estwing claw hammer that my father owned when I was a child, and I thought for a long time that all hammers should be built this way after that. The majority of them are not, and they often feel cheap. It was stolen after I had left it behind Due to the fact that I used a ball peen hammer but never returned it, I decided to My disappointment did not last long after I opened the package. Although it involves more expense, you get what you pay for in this case. You have to see it to believe it.
I suggest you buy a Vaughan hammer instead if this isn't a quality hammer. There is a point on the round part of this ball peen hammer, as mentioned in other reviews. I can only say that if you buy it, you'll see the poor quality of the.
There's a hammer in the box. The thing you hit with it is things. You won't need to worry about it breaking.
Currently, I own about seven of their products and will continue to purchase them in the future. I cannot describe how amazing it feels and how good it looks. As well, it's a very nice tool.
