  • cool find at HF

    seems like the over priced desktop planishing hammers were not selling so well at $60, so they decided to discontinue them and i picked up one for $19.
    not the best tool ever but for little jobs and artsy fartsy stuff it should work fine. i made one of my own last year but this one has a foot control and lets me use the one i made as just an english wheel only.

    summer is here, plant a tree. if you don't have space or time to plant one sponsor some one else to plant one for you. a tree is an investment in our planet, help it out.

    I stopped by my HF and they still wanted 35.95 for it.

    Guess you where lucky.

      Went by my local HF the other day and they had an entire endcap with these for $19.95. For what it is, that's a pretty good price. The foot switch is worth that.

      Fun - You got a good deal for light work (< 18 ga.). Not much good for heavier stuff though. Wear your hearing protection too and watch the fingers.

        Thanks for the tip. I mentioned it to a friend and as he was going to Las Cruces the next day he said he'd check on it. He came home with one for me and one for him (at $19.95 ea).

        It looks like it's easily worth that much.

          it was marked $35.99 at my store also but rang up at $19.95. i would take one up to the counter and see what it rings up at.

          i very much like the foot control, it was the thing that pushed me over the edge to get it.

                  Got one Friday for the $19..........

                  Supposedly the confusion was over the tent sale that started today. There where two prices in the register's computer and of course the manager wanted to charge the higher one the first time I was there.

                  Not a bad deal for $19.

                  Thanks for the tip fun4now
