Starrett combines two tools that you’d think were incompatible: a hammer and a magnifying glass. They say they integrate a magnifying lens into their No. 815 toolmakers’ hammer so you don’t have to look away from your work to find either tool.
Starrett hardens both the flat and ball-peen heads, and they chromium-plate the entire hammer for protection and an attractive finish. A rubber mounting protects the lens from the impact of hammering. The steel hammer weighs 133 grams, and Starrett will personalize it with a message, if you’re giving it as a gift.
Street pricing starts around $50.
