A ball-peen (also spelled ball-pein) hammer, also known as a machinist's hammer, is a type of peening hammer used in metalworking. It is distinguished from a cross-peen hammer, diagonal-peen hammer, point-peen hammer, or chisel-peen hammer by having a hemispherical head. It is commonly used as a tool for metalworking.
Sledge Hammer! is an American satirical police sitcom produced by New World Television that ran for two seasons on ABC from 1986 to 1988. The series was created by Alan Spencer and stars David Rasche as Inspector Sledge Hammer, a caricature of the standard "cop on the edge" character.
Soft-faced hammers feature heads made from a variety of materials like brass, nylon, lead, or even rolled rawhide; standard hard-faced hammers have heads made from alloy steel. Soft-face hammers are preferred for jobs that require precision or involve soft metals that should not be damaged.
