17 Jan If I Had A Hammer
When Pete Seeger wrote “If I Had a Hammer” in 1949, a contractor’s tool box looked a lot different than it does today. Every time I visit a building supply store, I’m amazed at the variety of tools that are out there. As fasteners, technology, and building products evolve, we are required to use specialty tools more often than we’ve had to in the past.
One tool that practically every contractor does have in their toolbox is a hammer. But did you know that there are dozens of varieties of hammers to choose from? Below I’ll feature some of the more common hammers and what they are used for.
