Here is another link that Paul had previously give on his blog for the Thorex Hammer in the US.
For anyone in the UK, this was the cheapest place I found with free postage when I last looked, and is the one Paul now uses at the workshop most of the time:
I work alongside Paul to plan and produce the videos for Woodworking Masterclasses
I know I’m a little late to the party.
For the USA folks I thought I would add a little to the discussion. After looking around online and seeing the prices, with shipping, for the 1.5″ model, I decided to cast a slightly larger net and look for the next size up as well. I was not ready to pay upwards of $35 for a hammer. I hate paying shipping costs.
After much thought and searching I decided on this one from Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HWAGC2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3QQ2HBA92VYT9 .
I bought it from CMC Supplies and they shipped it very quickly. I bought on a Tuesday and it arrived on Saturday. Coast to coast shipping. They have raised the price since my purchase, but if you want a hammer a little bigger than Paul’s this might be for you.
Just a short disclaimer about my relationship to the seller on Amazon… I have no affiliation with CMC Supplies, I’m just a happy customer.
Now I think I’ll go smash some stuff with it 🙂
http://www.hammersource.com is where I bought mine. On their page the product number is NT150 and it is the Thor (made in England) 12-712N hammer with a wooden handle. It was $21.99 for the hammer and $12.39 S/H for a total of $34.38. Freight was a bit pricey, but it is a good hammer and it arrived within two days of ordering.
