    What Hammer you Swinging ?
    When I was younger I used a heavy hammer maybe a 28oz or 30oz ax but not anymore. Today I use a titanium Ti-Bone. I use both the 14oz smooth face and the 15oz framer. I still use the 23oz steel for demo work.

    When I was younger I used a 28 oz steel Hart for framing and a 20 oz Estwing. Now I use a 16 oz Stilleto for framing and the 10 oz Stilleto for most everything else.

    I went from a 22 OZ Estwing that gave me framers elbow to a 22 OZ Fat Max with the hatchet handle that helped a lot. A few years ago I upgraded to a 15 OZ Ti-Bone hatchet handle. Best hammer I have ever had and no elbow issues. That hammer has a waffel face so I dont like using it for some applications. I picked up a smoothe face Dewalt 15 OZ mig weld as I dod not want to spend the money on another TI Bone. the dewalt is not a bad hammer for the price point. One of my helpers picked up the Kobalt knock off of the dewalt. I trued it out and for the 5 – 10 dollar price difference, they dont compare.

    I keep talking myself out of buying the Ti-Bone for some reason – I think it’s because I have a thing for wood handled hammers.

    51-162 – 16 oz. FATMAX XtremeĀ® AntiVibeĀ® Curve Claw Nailing Hammer is my hammer of choice. For pounding in clips and banging around between studs I haven’t been able to find a hammer that can compete.

    I do not frame out buildings so 16oz is my preferred weight.

    I have the DeWalt 15oz mig weld hammer. It suits me well since we just don’t use hammers the way we used to. I still have a 22 Oz Estwing somewhere.

    For general repairs I usually use my wood handled 12oz generic hammers. My favorite hammer is a 16oz Craftsman steel handled with rubber grip. Once in a while I need the rubber mallet and the plastic mallet. And my 20oz sledge that I bought at Lowe’s comes in handy on occasion.

    I like the look of CaliDecks Dalluge, looks balanced.

    The Dalluge is a nice hammer. I have an older steel Dalluge and a Douglas (same style hammer) that I quit using when I got the Stiletto.

    I prefer a wood handled hammer for absorbing the shock. I use various Craftsman hammers in 16 and 24 oz.

    Does anyone know if Bosch sells hammers? I don’t recall ever seeing any.
