Does anyone have a source for a flattening hammer? I’d like to get
one for my shop, but the standard tool catalogs don’t list them. The
only Web hit was a manufacturer in India. If you are not familiar
with this device, it is a small bench machine that basically consists
of two flat steel blocks, held apart by a spring, that slam together
when hit with the palm of your hand, thereby nicely flattening
whatever is sitting on the bottom block (the anvil). Great for
straightening and flattening stock.
