Precisionsmith Riveting and Texturing Hammer
The Riveting Hammer is useful in riveting pin stems and other cold connections. This hammer has a slightly curved crosspein end; traditionally, it is flat. The curved crosspein makes it very useful for texturing flat surfaces. The planishing end is also domed. Made of 420 stainless steel and Padauk wood.
Riveting is the compression of a rod or tube so the ends flare and hold two or more units together as the rod or tube passes through the parts. The Riveting Hammer's crosspein end flares the rod so it develops a head and the broad face smoothes out the flaring marks.
