It’s always fun to see what reader tmib_seattle is cooking up; this time it’s a few mods to a treadle hammer. It didn’t quite cut the mustard when he picked it up — it was rusty, and some of the welds weren’t great — but that didn’t turn out to be a problem for him. A little TLC and some changes in the accessories, and the hammer was ready to smash.
So what does tmib do once he’s finished all his mods and the hammer is up to spec? He does what any self-respecting Toolmonger would do –- find stuff to smash, and extra points if it’s messy. He graciously put up a few videos of the carnage, to amuse his fellow tool freaks. We love the smell of flattened marshmallow in the morning.
