Recently my rubber hammer gave its two week notice. I was on a quest to find a beloved replacement. The hunt was on. I put ads on craigs list, on the internet, I called all my stone buddies.... ok not really. But funny enough my stone buddy Adam called a week before asking if I had any idea where he could find a heavy rubber hammer I said - no.... not really.
I started a new stone job and was ready to start getting my foundation stones set in place with a little help from my beloved rubber mallet. I realized I was asking to much from this old timer. So I called my stone buddy Adam and ask if he had found a place to get one. He said.... yes he did. He had contacted a local rental place called Sun Belt and said they would have some Power Nailer hammers coming in any day. So I stopped by on my way to my scooter shop and found they just got the shipment in while I was standing asking about them. I checking out the new smaller hammer used for hitting power nailers when installed wood floors.

Once I got the Power nailer hammer in my hands my #1 concerned was the lack of weight. As you can see with my last hammer it's a real big boy. Not enough weight behind a hit was quickly put to rest. What I loved was: how easy it was to handly swing in my hand, great grip with the punched out holes in the handle, the bounce back with the rubber (also available with a white rubber head), Made In USA, easy size to carry around in my bucket of tools and the kicker the back side sledge. I had a bunch of stones with mortar on them. I was able to pick this up and use the back side to really do some damage. The angled point directs the energy when busting up stones. I was in love with this new found employee. I offered free room and board in the trailer and free tanning seasons in the sun while basking on the rocks during breaks. What more can a hammer ask for? So if your looking for something to swing around in your hands to help place a few flat stone or walling rocks this is hammer gets 5 stars on the list of great job site tools.

Who needs wood when you got rocks to hit...
