I really liked making my other two hammers, so last week I started making a chasing hammer. I did almost all of it on the lathe, except for the hole for the handle which I drilled on the drill press, then milled on the milling machine.
Milling the hole oval.
This is how it looks right now. I just need to clean it up and heat treat it. I don't have wood for the handle yet, so there's no hurry to get this part done.
