I have no experience working with gold, but I thought it would be a good little hammer. There is no way I can tell whether it would work for this job.
Selected User Reviews For Vaughan TC504 4-Ounce Commercial Ball Pein Hammer
A hammer with a plastic coating that cannot be used. Hammers made of steel or iron are wanted. You can coat the steel hammer or iron hammer with copious amounts of varnish or poly sealant. What a piece of trash. Metal should be shipped in its natural state. The last thing I want is I'm not able to use this The hammer is coated in plastic. The plastic goop does not require me to spend a half an hour removing it. It is crucial that the face of the hammer is smooth, clean, and true. It ruins the product due to the plastic frame.
I found this hammer to be well worth the extra cost, especially after reading some consumer reviews on other cheaper options.
I can't be sure about the durability, because it's an item that I occasionally use in my gun repair kit, but I assume it will last a good long time. enjoy good tools (and who doesn't) you'll realize that it's worth it as soon as you try it I think this is a useful This is a highly recommended product.
The 4oz ball pein hammer is great. This product appears to be well made and has a nice balance in your hand. In regards to the reviews that claim it is plastic or plastic coated, that statement is false. There is wood and steel in it.
Because Vaughan is an American manufacturer I purchase from them every time and I was very pleased with this hammer. My head is flawless, so it is hard to believe that the polish was not as well as it could have been. However, this is a company that will stand behind its products and resolve any issue.
Despite the fact that this is made in the USA, quality control has been a problem. On the first one I received, the grinding on the flat face was horrible so it was A better version of the second was found. On top of that, it has a hefty amount of plastic coating on both sides of the hammer, especially the 4oz. My overall opinion of this hammer is not very positive.
The ball and peen end of the head are not as smooth as expected, and the head has poor grinding. There is an offset of the handle hole, and the distance from metal to wood is 4 mm on one side and 7 mm on the other. I am sorry to say, but this is not as good as my older Craftsman ball peen, which was also made in the.
If you want to buy a top-quality US made hammer for this price, don't waste your money on Chinese junk. The head is beautifully finished and shaped. The metallurgy in hammers made in the US is better than that of Chinese hammers. Finished in a nice, hickory-like style, the handle is well shaped and fitted. This wood handle ball peen hammer is by Vaughan, and I've been buying it for many years and the quality has been good. This kind of celebration may seem ridiculous over a hammer that costs 12 dollars, but this combination is becoming less common every year. Vaughan, thank you for your comment.
