4 oz Ball Peen Chasing Hammer, Peening Hammer, Riveting Hammer, Texture Hammer, chasing hammer, stamping/ Jewelry Tools, Metal Forming Tools

Jewelers German Style Chasing hammer with ball peen head is a necessary tool for wire and sheet metal forming, to distress wood and for household projects.

The ball peen end is used to texture blanks and sheet metal adding dimples or a textured edge and to make your own rivets:

To make rivets: Punch a hole in your metal sheet or blank, cut a piece of wire of the gauge that will fit snugly into the hole punched [see chart for help]. Using the ball peen, shape the end of the wire used for the 'head' into a dome, then flatten to spread out the other side - easy peasy inexpensive cold connections!

Educational Metalsmithing Tips:

(Originally published in Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist April 2010.)

Moving, Stretching, and Fold-Forming Metal

"Steel makes jewelry metal move better, stronger, and faster than anything else." Use a steel block under metal when stamping, texturing, or forming.

Stretch or move? "There are two basic ways to form metal: you can stretch or compress it by deformation, or you can move it without deforming it. Anvils and blocks are usually wood, plastic, or steel, and you can use steel, wood, hide, or plastic striking tools (hammers, punches, or blocks) with them." To help you figure out which combination of tools will help you achieve the results you want, remember these two rules: steel + steel = stretch, and steel + wood, plastic, or hide = move.

"Metal will generally take the shape of whatever the harder surface is." If you strike metal on a wood block with a steel hammer, that metal will typically curl up toward the hammer.
Do the opposite: Strike curled metal on a steel block with a rawhide, wood, or plastic mallet, and the curled metal will flatten toward the steel.

Consequently, "If you strike a flat piece of annealed metal with a steel hammer on a flat steel block, the metal will move away from the hammer without curling up, depending on the shape of its face. The force of the strike and the shape of the hammer face determine how far and deep the metal moves."

"You can gently refine a curve or cupped form in metal without stretching it by using a flat wood block and a curved wood or plastic hammer on the inside of the curve or cup."
