Thor hide hammers have malleable Iron head fitted with two cylindrical faces of compressed buffalo hide on a wooden shaft.
The malleable Iron head provides the weight for the blow and the hide faces absorb the shock whilst transferring the force to the item being struck without fear of damage.
Ideal where a heavy blow is required combined with a relatively small striking area. These hide hammers have faces that are designed to wear and can be easily replaced as spare faces are available.
They are used as a general-purpose soft-faced hammer in engineering for assembly, repair and maintenance.
(No.4 size hammer has a slip-on handle - all other sizes have the usual wedge type handle fitted.)
Thor deadblow hammers have coated die-cast aluminium alloy head with rubber grip and screw-in white nylon or brown polyurethane faces. Available in 5 different weights.
The hollow die-cast head is partially filled with steel shot to add to the weight, prevent rebound and deliver dead blows of maximum force.
Thor deadblow hammers are ideal as a multi-purpose striking tool and are ideal for sustained and effective blows without recoil.
They are commonly used in most assembly / fitting applications including engineering, toolmaking, shopfitting, partitioning and double glazing.
Replacement faces are available.
Thor Hide mallets have a one piece cylindrical compressed hide head, that provides a large striking surface with a relatively light head weight.
These hide mallets are widely used in sheet metal forming, the jewellery trade and used on copper, brass and other soft materials that need to be shaped etc.
These Mallets are fitted with an oval wood handle.
Thor replacement cylindrical faces are constructed from compressed hide, these are for use with a malleable iron split head hammer.
Hide faces will absorb the shock of the blow and transfer the force to the item being struck without fear of damage.
The Thor hide faces are ideal where a heavy blow is required in a relatively small striking area.
Faces are designed to wear and be replaced.
