What’s Inside?

This book is not a how-to brochure. In it I do not teach you how to sink a bowl, raise a vase, or rivet two pieces of metal together. This book is a guide to help you navigate through the world of hammers. It will introduce you to many different types of hammers and what they are used for. It will help you figure out which is the best tool for the job.
