Hammers, Claws and Mallets
Hammering is an important part of any leatherworker's life. It's no wonder that there are so many different types of hammers, from shoemaking hammers to leatherworking mauls to tack hammers and mallets.
Depending on the projects you're working on, these tools can be used for everything from stretching leather to nailing in heels. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned pro, Leffler’s range of hammer Australia can help you reach your goals!
When you're working with leather, you need the right tools to get the job done quickly and efficiently. It's also important to understand the best ways to use each type of leathercraft hammer. Our range of hammers includes:
Tack hammers are used to hammer nails into leather, wood or other materials. They're also useful for removing nails from wood and leather. These types of tools have a flat face, so they're great for driving in nails that are flush with the surface of the material being worked on.
Saddler's tack hammers are used when working with leather for saddles, bridles, reins, etc., while upholsterer's tack hammers are great for smaller jobs like repairing furniture or antique furniture pieces. Both types of tack hammers will help you get professional results every time!
Our saddler’s hammer from the Osborne brand makes it easy to find everything you need at affordable prices online today!
A mallet works best when you need to apply pressure evenly over a large surface area—for example, when using it to hammer in tacks or pegs into leatherwork projects like saddles or bags. Because of its lightweight characteristic, it can be used to work with different kinds of leathers. Worked well for tooling thick and thin leathers, detailed work on small pieces and accuracy in hitting where you want to intend.
Osborne’s rawhide mallet hammer is best for many jobs requiring a soft, striking face. The mallet head is made of rolled water buffalo rawhide, which makes it more durable than rawhide alone, but still gives you the same malleability and softness that you're looking for in this particular type of job.
If you're looking for something a little more unique, we also have dual-density mallets from the Boker brand. These types of mallets are made with two different types of felt on each face: one side has more "bounce" than the other — a perfect tool for use with punches, setters and steel dies.
Mauls are a tool used to hit leather. They have a weighted head, so they can apply pressure to the leather without damaging it. The head is made of soft material like nylon to ensure that both your leather and your tools are not damaged. Depending on your needs, they are available in different shapes and sizes.
