Do they have Lowe’s in CA?
I have one and it is great. listed as Kobalt 12-oz Hickory Double Face Mallet
Great advice George. Now I know this is all about hand tools but I think I would have found a friend with a band saw. Less time and effort. There are great bargains out there on eBay or estate sales. I recently bought a Disston D7 and a D9 and a lightweight from an estate sale for $11. Look around there are tons of saws for sale because most people would want to use a power something to cut wood rather than a hand saw
I am all for the easiest method that gives me the best results. I recently bought 2 DMT diamond stones and right now I am unsure asz to there honing capabilities. I used them on a new #4 I bought and I just don’t feel like it’s sharp as when I used water stones. Don’t get me wrong I want to move to the diamond stone I just don’t know if I’m getting the sharpness I was getting previously. So how do I get out of the sharpening question and address my plane which won.t cut a full shaving width. I just sharpened it did all the realignment issues to get the blade straight and tracking true. Can someone point me in the right direction.

Not to blow anyone’s bubble on the hammer but Lowe’s sells a very well balanced 12 oz.hammer with the soft/hard side for $13.98 US, I bought one and have been very pleased with it. It’s a Kobalt with a hickory handle. Model #: 62772
