I've got a treasured vintage shooboy that has the black oxide finish.....it's like a magic amulet of some kind, as often I can just put it on my bench and difficult projects seem to just mellow out without having even to tap them a little...

Shooboy, please don't take this the wrong way.

Your products are top shelf made with quality materials, by a highly skilled craftsman.

That said, I feel members just want quality from start to finish (including the finish).

I think that most members posting here would pay a little more for a top quality finish. And there's many which would like to help with the process. Whether it be ordering 2 instead of one, helping to pay the cost of the finish, etc.

I'm sure no matter what you decide to do, the product will be better than its competition.

Randy, I'd be another to help get the Oxide finish. I think you should consider it, I don't think anyone of us will complain about a few bucks more.

Unlike most of the world I interact with- There's good people here.

I'd like to meet you and the other members here. I'd love to buy you and the rest a beer but since I can't one of your hammers will have to do.

I'm going to use it to rebuild a Crossman pellet gun I got 40 years ago for Christmas. I don't need it but would like to have it to do this special job.

Thanks for all the humanity Mitch

I'm a bad shot and no matter how nice the gun...I'm still a bad shot.

I'd like to buy one to give to my brother.

And a set of heads for mine.

Doesn't matter how long the wait is, as long as you're making them you'll have a line of customers.

The success of a solution usually depends upon your point of view

Randy, my hammer (perhaps an early model) does not have any black oxide finish, just plain metal (pic below). Personally, I would prefer one like that as opposed to one that is painted, and that would certainly make your production easier, no?
 

 


Wow, that is a very early one ! I'm going to paint them to avoid the chance of rusting. I will be searching around though possibly in the future to see about other finishing ideas....


Have you consider powder coating? I have a friend that powder coats a lot of small items he makes. He says it is easy and inexpensive to do at home.

I have no idea if the finish would meet your needs or standards.

I would also second Exam_man's post above, cost is not a factor in wanting one of your hammers.

I have no use for a hammer like this but from the comments I'm reading, it makes me think I need one...

You have a use for it you just do not know it yet. I just used mine last night to remove some pins from my AR. I've used it to build AR's, replace trigger groups and for general work on my firearms.

I have read about these hammers on here for years and heard nothing but good things.

I would like to get one if any are left or in one the next batch.

Thank you,

Verne

Put me on the list for a small and a large, please.
I will patiently wait my turn...




There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass!

Hi guys, sorry for additional delays, my real job is taking up much of my time. Hammers are done except for surface finish. Working on endcaps and tips. Hopefully can start filling orders soon. Thank you all for your patience, Shoo
