    Here is my take on the crescent hammer. The 22mm axle hammer with 12 gauge copper wire rapped handle.[img]<a%20href=[/img]">

    Very multi-purpose. How did you connect the wrench to the head?

    excellent job on that! I'll add one to my kit.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    OWT I cut the open end off the combination wrench with the chop saw, ground the end on the bench grinder until it fit tightly in the hammer head, then welded it top and bottom with the mig welder. Wrench handle held 5-6 feet of wire. Just noticed I mispelled wrapped.

    Nicely done. Would this be for your home shop or on the trail tool-kit? Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    MRGIZMO this would be for my trail tool kit, wich is a little on the bulky side, but I would like to try to do all my home repairs with what I carry on the bike.

    Frog I just have a lincoln flux core welder 120 volt at home wich is fine for 95% of what I do, and would have worked fine for this project, but I welded this on a miller 200 at work (saves my wire). A couple of guys I know have the hobart 135/140 amp handler 120 volt, They seem like a great machine for the home shop for the money.

    Howardgene, having been inspired by these 'multi-tool' ideas that have been presented I got an idea for you; The ball-peen end of your hammer may not be a feature that you are likely to use on the TW. If you carefully grind it down to represent a 'stud' onto which you can slip a 3/8th's or 1/2 inch drive socket the use potential may really expand. Granted, it will not ratchet, but with quality (many facets) sockets it will still be very useful (I believe). You can then also use sockets with the appropriate allen-heads. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........
