    I have an article in the Highland Woodworking "Wood News". It's on how to make a small brass hammer.

    Take a look here for the "Wood News" and here for the article.

    Mike

    PS I get a $100 gift certificate. What I wanted to buy is a PC 390 sander but Highland doesn't carry the PC line. What do you think of the Festool ETS125EQ? It has a brake also. But can you use regular 8 hole sandpaper on the Festool? Or do you have to buy special Festool sandpaper?

    Congratulations Mike. Don't have time to read it right now, but a quick scan shows some real craftsmanship in that hammer. Nice work.

    Mike,
    I've had the Festool sander for about five years, and I really like it. It replaced a PC333, and there's a world of difference twixt the two. Great little tool!

    I'm nor sure about other brands of paper, since I've never use anything other than Festool stuff on mine. BTW, The Festool paper is actually 9 hole, not eight. There's a center hole in addition to the usual eight, and the sander's fan blows air out through the center. So, even if the other eight line up, you'll still need to punch out a center hole for optimum performance.

    Well done Mike, really great idea. I have a friend that has done me a great deal of favors recently and I have wanted to give him a gift to say thanks. This will be perfect item for him. I will have to get some brass and make one.
    cheers

    Congratulations.

    You should use Festool sandpaper, but that's not a problem because it is good sandpaper at a good price and the Festool technology makes it both work better and last longer.
