Brotherhood Of The Traveling Hammer(2-banging 16s)


Hey guys. I finally got a chance to make a quick video with Cole's Titanium hammer. Now I need Kent to PM his address to me, so he can have a go with it.

Cole asked me to give this hammer a try. The point was whether or not it was possible to "two bang" 16d's with it. There's another thread floating around here about it.

Re: Brotherhood Of The Traveling Hammer(2-banging 16s)


I'm with ya lone- if I was hand nailing all day I'd probably want something heavier too. I guess the appeal for me is that it's way lighter to carry around and for as often as I use it it's worth it. ( I have the wood handled one and think its WAY better than the Ti-bone)

Cole's hammer was a 12 oz.Titanium Stiletto with a Poly handle.
Second hammer was a Craftsman Cali Framer.
Third was a 24 oz. Harbor Freight rip hammer.

Scored the Bowflex with all the attachments for 300 bucks
After I busted my azz to get it into the Man Cave, I needed a couple weeks to recover.

Riz can 2 bang a spike with a brick I think. Seems like it's more about the carpenter than the hammer. I may have to let one of my carpenters do the honors when it makes it's way here. Gonna have to have a lot of takes or some serious editing to not embarrass myself.

I won't lie, I deleted a few takes before settling on this one.

Amazing how well those nails go into soft wood.

I could not see doing that all day long though.

That shirt is an XL......I'm generally a XXL. I don't like to bind. I had to give Cole props though.
