We Do Not Have a Handle on This
Posted on 06 February 2018
We hit a snag with our lump hammers in January. Our handle supplier decided to ignore us and stop returning our calls, emails and offers to give them a big order for handles.
So we are back to finding a new supplier that won’t charge us $35 per handle.
As a result, we are treading water with the lump hammer. We have the money to make the parts, but until we have a handle and know the exact size of the tenon in real life (not in CAD – an important distinction) we can’t make the hammer heads.
So John, Raney and I are sifting through 132 suppliers this week.
Sorry we don’t have good news to report. (This is why most toolmakers don’t have active blogs.)
