Re: Mallets


Iíve been using this one for a last 6years. I really like the size both in using it and being able to carry it in your pocket or tool bags

Re: Mallets


Haven't used anything other than my trim hammer and the whack stick I made....
Curious... Can anyone tell me the difference between the mallet types? Is there a benefit between the different head styles?
