  • AWESOME MALLET

    I have a dead blow mallet that is clean and I use only for assembly and such. Used to use it on my chisels, I have a craftsman set with a metal striker at the top so they can take it. I bought a set of Bahco chisels that have a wooden handle and obviously can't smack them with a hammer. They are for hand use and I know they make woodworkers mallet's for this use. I was going to buy one at rockler but then I discovered this.

    a nice soft head, you can squeeze it with your hand yet it is solid enough to pack a punch without damaging the chisels or your work. And it can be used for assembly etc. A GREAT tool for woodworkers!

    I have a 1# dead blow I use for assembling project of soft wood (pine, cedar, etc.,) and a 3# I use for assembling projects of hard wood (oak, hickory, etc.) or when I make log furniture.

      I have a couple of dead blows too. The nice thing about the above mentioned mallet is that it has a soft head with a hell of a lot of give, but it still packs a huge punch. Great for those wooden handled chisels and such. My Bahco set sees my hand, this mallet and that is it!
