Just finished a batch of hammers. I also have some drill holders. Always ready to consider an offer, trade or whatever.

Do they have the magnets in the head? Is the magnet strong enough to support the weight of a hook and a daisy and a pair of aiders?

Would love to give it a try!

I still need to put on the 1/2" webbing leashes.

Wilbeer,
$120 for DAMMERRs - always all caps and two R's
Happy to consider any deal or offer. 13" long

Couch,
I am up to 100 something in serial numbers.

Pete,
Those with the magnets were the Zephyr. I made a batch of those and Brandon Adams found homes for them. All gone as far as I know. Those are quite a bit more work to make and fewer people want one. I could always make more if inspired to do so.

Healyje,
I doubt nitro will fix him

Beautiful work, Dan. As usual.

Pete, you grip the aiders in your hand with the handle, so the magnet doesn't have to hold all that weight while your slings whip in the wind. You can use XL daisies, or extend with a draw when you need to. Cheers.

Sooner or later, I'll throw 120 bones down for one of your Dammers, Dan. Next meeting of the tribe? Can you bring a few then?

Sure thing Mooch, I look forward to getting together.

PTPP: I do have one of those hammers, the prototype. It's mounted an a store bought handle and the pick isn't as aggressive as the later ones. It has some dings in it. Make me an offer. Image below.

Also some drill holders.

when they are all lined up like that first pic they remind of the foot pedals on an church organ.

stoked to see you make more Dan!

Dan,
Glad to see you have been busy making the good stuff!
My Bayonet drill holder is still working well, and Skyler has his Zephyr.

Just want to say that the drill I got from Dan is one of the best I've used. Drilled about 30 bolts with it so far, and it performs perfectly!

Can't thank Dan enough for taking care of me. He puts a lot of love into his design and craftsmanship.

Haven't tried one of his hammers yet, but I'm sure they're every bit as good of quality as his drills.

The regular ones are for SDS 3/8".

Brian,
This batch is 13" long and weighs 25 oz. without the leash. The head is made from 1.25" square stock and is 4.6" long. Head is 4140/4142 chrome-moly steel oil quench hardened and then tempered to about Rockwell C50. On the handle is 1" X .065" DOM tube mild steel. The handle is dry hickory sourced from Georgia. The carabiner hole is bigger to fit a wide variety of biners.

Klaus,
The 4 black things are Nano SDS drill holders. They will hold any SDS Plus drill bit including 3/8" and 1/4". People buy these for emergency drill kits, occasional back country use or a bottom-of-the-haulbag spare holder. 4140/4142 steel hardened and tempered.

The Bombproof holders are made from 7/8" hex bolts. Usually grade 5 or A325. 70A durometer urethane grip cast in place. Hard steel striking pin - Rockwell C60 or 65.
