Here's all the bronze infused stainless steel parts
|Machinists Hammer 3D printed stainless and bronze parts|
I had them printed with all the right opening and guide holes so that I could simply tap each head face with a 1/4 - 20 tap.

The head was so much fun to design. I wanted something elegant and of my own design, bearing the tool logo. It printed beautifully

The handle is also 3D printed out of a very tough and slightly flexible black plastic. The handle is hollow and I bonded in a steel rod inside of it with epoxy for proper balance and weight.

You can see that the top has a split that once the wedge is driven into place, will spread and grip the tapered hole on the head aggressively

Once its all assembled and wedged, it works exquisitely.

I'm busy making more than just the matching brass heads starting with this tool steel slightly domed face. I've added a delrin face and will soon be adding a wood face and a lead face, as well as several steel faces that taper to small faces or give me some very small cross pean faces.
