Quit complaining.You get what ya pay for.Besides that.Who gets hammers with magnetic nail holders on them anyway?You might want to post on the DIY forum.

I'm kiddin.The quality control on that hammer is crap.I wonder if it slipped through the cracks or was it a whole lot of them that went UN-noticed.

Husky quality in general is pretty bad. I only buy Husky organizers and things like that. That pic doesn't surprise me one bit.

I have a husky hammer. It's just for general use/demo. The grip is starting to back it's way off the handle. I buy their wrenches too, they work good for oil changes but I think I'd get a better quality socket for changing spark plugs. The husky one kept getting stuck inside the engine.

That is usually the result of the rubber grommet they put inside the socket to allow you to pull out the spark plug without it falling out. Depending on the engine that can come in handy. 99% of the time its annoying and I take it out.

The grommet worked good but it was the husky extension I had on top of it that didn't have enough grab and would pull out of the socket. I had to stretch needle nose pliers in to pull it out.

that hammer is $7.88. I snapped 2 of those "wood" handles before replacing them with $5 hickory handles that seem indestructible. also whoever bashed magnetic nail starters obviously doesn't frame. I won't buy a hammer without one. they're a godsend.

Lower center of gravity for walking plates?

I use snap-on spark plug sockets with magnets in 'em... ;)
