Good deal, I 've heard of lead from many sources, but hammers? Just out of curiosity what were the lead hammers used for ,in your shop I mean?
We have an injection molding dept at the shop where I work and I was told those guys used to use the big lead hammers to knock their parts out of the molds. I'm a 5 axis cnc machinist so sometimes we use hammers like that to tap fixtures around when we are indicating them in. Generally I use dead blow hammers anymore though.
