In today’s post I am doing ball peen hammer restoration. Hammer is produced by Picard from Germany. Picard company manufacturing hammers approximately 160 years. This hammer is marked with serial number 9. The weight of hammer head is 500gr size.

Not sure how old this hammer is, but originally is sold in UK. The guy who owned it moved to Norway. Then he advertise it to sell it and luckily I found it and purchase it… it came perfect. Always happy when I manage to save old tools!

I started by removing piece of old handle and cleaning the hammer head with steel brush. After removing all surface rust I started sanding the hammer head and preparing it for spray painting.

Then I cleaned the ball peen hammer surface with 100% acetone and with that done I was sure it is ready for spray painting. Story continues further down!

Check out this video, it shows how I restored this rusty ball peen hammer!

Here I just used regular fast curing spray paint. I sprayed once primer ( left) and three coats of black (right). Quite happy with the result. I had to sand down as you can see on both ends to remove paint afterwards.

Then I started making wooden handle for this ball peen hammer head. I have used small plane to roughly shape the handle and afterwards I use file for wood and fine sand paper to get smooth edges.

Last step after joining the handle and hammers head I applied linseed oil and rub it approximately 2 minutes. I wait 30 minutes to soak properly and made couple of pictures… below is one of them!
