CTW plane adjusting hammers are designed specifically for adjusting the blades and wedges of wooden planes and infill hand planes. The polished brass and Lignum Vitae head is weighted toward the brass striking end and is designed so it won't mar or mushroom your blade like a steel hammer. The Lignum end is of a smaller diameter and is used to tap the heel or toe of the plane to adjust the blade without leaving dent marks in the wooden body. It should also be used to tap plane wedges tight to prevent damaging the heel of the wedge. The handles are individually shaped from quartersawn White Ash with the grain oriented to avoid the runout which weakens many other hammer handles. Finished with 3 coats of boiled linseed oil, the handles provide a good grip and avoid the slipperiness of the more commonly used lacquer finish. If you own or use infill or wooden planes, you owe it to your planes to use one of these hammers. Total weight is 8 ounces.
