HAMMER WORK TOOLS

These tools are necessary if you intend to do a whole
set of hammers--  
Even a whole section.  They assure you the best
chance of removing the old hammer without damaging the shank.  
Also, you can choose to buy hammers without holes drilled and
do them yourself.  For square grands this is absolutely needed
.

 



 

 






                                                             Part Number           Price

Hammer head and butt boring jig-
    The correct angle of boring is set easily
    by using the adjacent hammer.  
    Essential where a number, of full set,
    of hammers is being fitted-                        SH170          $ 44.85

    Universal Handle SH26 needed







Hammer Head Remover and Butt Extractor--
    FOR UPRIGHTS ONLY
    Hammers are often removed by crushing the molding.  This damages the shank and can break it.
    This tool pulls the hammer molding off by force under control.  
    The bevelled plate is for angled hammers-
        Spinets model                                                                                                                 SH130AS       $ 42.45

        Do NOT use on grands (see below)

Clamp- Used with 130AS and A
    This clamp is used where a shank is broken. It is attached so that the hammer can be pulled
    with the Extractor.                                                                                                                   SH130B      $ 24.95

        head molding without destroying everything--  ONLY for Grands--                                     SH131        $ 29.00

Boring Out Guide-  When the hammer shank breaks off at the hammer molding or at the butt,
    cut the excess smooth, set up this tool like a small vise, then drill down through it to
    center the hole-                                                                                                                      SH167         $ 50.00

Drills for hammers and shanks-  Has a point on the tip of the drill to show when the
