This double sided texture hammer is for use on non-ferrous metals.
Just place sheet metal on a steel bench block
or anvil and strike
sharply. Either strike all over the metal without rotating the hammer
or rotate the hammer with each strike to achieve a new pattern.
Hammers have a Rockwell hardness of 48.
This hammer has 2 patterns, crisscross and crosshatch on the other.
This is one of the texture hammers used in our Hammered Textured Metals online class with Kim St. Jean.
Although one side of this hammer looks like it will impress a star pattern, it really doesn't because it is hard to get that entire pattern to impress.....but it does make a pretty cool pattern (photo of left circle). We
are having a great time with these new texture hammers. There are so
many different looking textures you can make be just rotating the
hammer or by striking the metal with 2 different faces.
