A 4 Pound Hammer

 

I think I need to make a SUGGESTION. A 4 pound hammer requires a lot of energy to drive in a stake. You will wear yourself out using it.  With my 65 years OF EXPERIENCE AND HAVING DRIVEN THOUSANDS OF STAKES IN THAT TIME, I HAVE FOUND THAT THE BEST WEIGHT HAMMER IS 12 POUNDS.

 

YOU MAY NEED TO ADJUST THE LENGTH OF THE HANDLE TO CREATE THE MOST EFFICIENT SWING.  I'M NOT A BIG PERSON SO I NEED TO CUT OFF TEN OR TWELVE INCHES OF THE HANDLE.

 

YEARS AGO ALL WE HAD TO WORK WITH WAS A SLEDGE. FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS WE HAVE USED ELECTRIC (LIGHT WEIGHT) JACK HAMMERS.  IT SAVED MAN POWER, ALSO MONEY FOR REPLACEMENT OF BROKEN HAMMER HANDLES.

 

I WISH YOU THE BEST OF LUCK WITH YOUR NEW ENDEAVOR.  WITH THE NATIONS POOR ECONOMY, YOU WILL NEED SOME GOOD LUCK.

 

 BEST ADVICE: PERSEVERE!
