They don't look at me too long when I stare back with my "I'm gonna drive this deep into your skull" look :laughing:dont people look at you funny luggin one of these around?
That's right you cannot deny physics...unfortunatly Force = Mass x Acceleration gives credit both to mass and the speed at which you can swing. Acceleration is measured in terms of velocity squared V^2. I'm not going to go into detail but swing speed is very important.I get **** all the time. I doesn't bother me in the least bit. 29 oz rig axe. It's made for pounding some serious nails. Set....drive. Give me 29 oz of titanium and I'd probably try it.
Never has made sense to me why everyone thinks Titanium is the cats meow. You still need the same force to put the nail in the board.
Can't deny physics.
It's in the wrist action. I have posted this before and I will say it again. Steel handled hammers transmit shock to the elbow. They don't absorb the shock like wood. Can't tell you how many guy's with estwings complained to me about tennis elbow. After I suggested a wooden handle they reluctantly complied. Few weeks later no more tennis elbow.That's right you cannot deny physics...unfortunatly Force = Mass x Acceleration gives credit both to mass and the speed at which you can swing.

In pool the hardest breaks are done with a very light jump/break cue because you can get more velocity out of them, much like a hammer on a nail.
Unless you arn't physically capable of swinging a hammer fast and are using the weight of the hammer to drive the nail thats another story.
I think Titanium is better since its so much fun to say and the hard-on expierienced by most men when they read the side of their hammers causes an adrenelin rush allowing them to swing harder. Not to mention there is very little vibrations transfered.
Bottom line is its personal preferance, I'm not the best at swinging a hammer, but with a heavy one me elbow hurts the next day; which is enough to sell me on the light one.
Hey DukeIs that a putty knife on the right? What is that?
I also have a nail set and a Klein electricians 8 in 1 screwdriver in my bags. No vice grips though.
Probably a Johnson Level and Tool, I think they are made in china under the title Fuller Tools now.I have spent the last 3 days trying to find a link to that red tool. No luck. It had a made in Canada stamp on it...but thats gone. I have seen similar black ones here in the States, but they are all more rigid / less springy. My brother-in-law gave it to me. $10 I think. It is made out of spring steel so it has a little "bendability" to it. I use it as a scraper, pry bar, chisel, tape smoother, or whatever. It's pretty cool.
