Dead Blow

3D Printed Dead Blow

I wanted to test a 3D printed hammer. While Mojor from Thor is a popular 3D print, it is not functional as a hammer. For this I designed the dead blow from Jermey Schmidts CNC pattern. This hammer printed on a Lulzbot MOARstruder in 8 hours, and weights in at almost 2 lbs. I have taken the dead blow to outdoor conferences and have used it to pound in tent stakes and nails. There is no metal strike face, the pads being made with TPU filament.
