Which hammer do I need?

The hammers shown on this page are designed for a specific purpose or application. Here are some descriptions of the different types of hammers and their uses:
  • Riveting- comprised of one round and one chisel face. Used for forming metal and for creating a rivet.
  • Ballpien – a commonly used hammer for shaping and flattening metal and for removing dents; with one round face and one half round domed face.
  • Embossing- also known as repoussé, its two high domed round faces, this hammer works the metal from the back to form three-dimensional shapes.
  • Forming- used to move heavy-gauge metal while retaining much of the weight of the original metal. Substantial weight with a slightly rounded face
  • Planishing - used for hardening metal and for smoothing the surface of gold, silver, brass, stainless steel and other metals.
  • Chasing - a multipurpose hammer for chasing, chiselling, riveting or peening.
  • Stretching - Used for expanding metals surface area
  • Polishing – To creating indents in your metal with a hammered texture and smooth, shiny finish

Some hammer terms explained:
  • Riveting – hammering a metal rod in a hole to create a head and fasten something.
  • Repoussé/Embossing – the shaping of metal in relief by hammering on the reverse side.
  • Chasing – the process of hammering metal to form a recessed shape
  • Planishing - the process of hammering metal with a polished hammer to obtain an even surface
  • Chiselling - by creasing metal over holes and grooves, an alternative riveting technique.

  • Many cotemporary artists who manufacture by hand bowls, trays and sculptures in various metals use these tools and skills today

If you have not used a repoussé hammer before here is a way to practice to make a small sweet bowl, practice with none precious metals first.Use thin brass sheet approximately 0.8mm thick. Cut the shape you would like the bowel to be. Remember the more simple the shape, the easier it is to repoussé. Try more complicated shapes later.
Using our Deburring Tool with Pocket Clip (B31879) trim the edges of the sheet to remove any sharp edges; in most cases it is unnecessary to anneal the metal but this process will make the metal softer and hence easier to work on.
Place your sheet on the leather Sandbag (S30559) and hammer the piece using the flat end from the centre of the sheet gradually moving outwards towards the outer part of the sheets.
Once the basic convex shape has been achieved reverse the hammer and continue beating the sheet with the domed part of the hammer head.
Gradually it will form around the sand bag into a dish shape; the dish will have a domed textured effect.
See our full range of polishing abrasives and equipment to get the ideal finish for the bowl, for example, lustre, polished, satined, etc.
