Default Ron Covell Body Hammer and Dolly Set / Slap Hammer - Trick-Tools.com

Trick-Tools has teamed with Ron Covell to create the Covell Signature Line Body Hammers and Dollies. These made in the USA hand tools are specified by Ron Covell and are his favorite designs from over 50 years of metal shaping experience. The Covell Hammers feature an octagonal hickory handle that limits handle rotation and gives a well-balanced, substantial feel with excellent grip capabilities. All hammers have a 12-inch radius round head, good for general purpose work, except the 168HC which has a high-crown 2.25-inch radius, good for stretching or inside radius hammering.

The included dollies feature 5 popular dollies that provide low and high crowns and numerous radii for complex shaping. Drop forged from high carbon steel, heat-treated, tempered, and polished, these hammers and dollies are built to last for years to come. Metal Shaping requires extreme attention to detail and tedious adjustments, making these tools a must-have for your metal shaping project.

Covell Slap Hammer
This unique tool is designed by and is the preferred method of master metal shaper Ron Covell for smoothing lumpy metal. It is ideal for planishing both steel and aluminum panels. Because it has a footprint much larger than a traditional hammer it is perfect for metal finishing and will leave less marking than traditional hammers. The Covell Slap Hammer is beautifully hand-crafted from 4130 chrome-moly steel and heat-treated to Rockwell 44 for durability, then polished to a high luster and laser engraved with the Covell logo. The high-density foam grip makes it comfortable to use for extended periods. The Covell Slap Hammer will quickly become your favorite hand tool as well!

•Head Length (inches): 5 x 1.5
•Recommended For aluminum and medium-duty steel
•Construction: hardened 4130 chrome moly
