Hammer by James SchumacherIn this 3 sessions class (3 days every other day) you will learn how to make a hammer from aluminum and brass as you learn basic metal machining techniques.

Machining operations that will be covered in the class include basic metal turning, external thread cutting, knurling, chamfering, cutting off, milling a flat on a round work piece, drilling, and tapping threads.

The hammer, which will be yours to keep, will have a brass head and will be useful as a "positioning" hammer. If you want a hammer head other than brass that's 1¼ inch diameter, bring the material to the class.

There is a materials fee of $20.

Before the class, students should view the following YouTube videos on how to make this type of hammer:
