Hammer head is the functional part of the tool, and is constantly exposed to mechanical impact. If the striking element becomes out of order earlier than the handle, in most cases it can be bought separately.
Hammer head: 6 important facts
The striking part is often made of metal: for instance, steel. The products made of it are suitable, for example, for flattening unpainted metal work-pieces. Plastic, rubber and polyurethane can also be used in production of the heads. Tools made of these materials help to avoid scratching the processed surface. They are the best option for bodywork repair, including jobs related to painted car parts.
These items differ in their shape. Square models are more suitable for operations in tight spaces. Besides, as a rule, they are cheaper. Round elements ensure efficient transfer of the impact. With their help, it is easier to deliver precise blows.
The face of the item can be flat. In that case, it is perfect for dealing with metal sheets. If this element is ball-shaped, it is recommended to use it together with a chisel or similar tools. The face of a hammer head can be textured as well. Models of this type are suitable for car body flattening.
Items with a polished face can slip off during the process. In order to prevent it, they can be made slightly rough using, for instance, sanding paper.
Before you start, it is necessary to make sure that the head is securely attached to the handle. If the parts of the tool detach from each other, there is a risk of injury for the worker. Besides, it is important to check the functional part for defects. Cracks or chips reduce the efficiency of its work. In that case, it is necessary to buy replacement hammer head as soon as possible to change the damaged one.
The parameters of the tools should comply with the specifics of your task. For example, when dealing with small car parts, you shouldn’t use the device with a large heavy head.
