Hammers


Bar-Plate Carries a whole line of Hammers for the diemaker. Our own Dead Blow Diemakers Hammer is the only hammer made specifically for our industry. Urethane hammers and Raw hide Mallets are also available.

Dead Blow Diemakers Hammer


The only Hammer designed for and with the input of diemakers, the Precision Steel Rule Diemaker’s Hammer is the ultimate Hammer.

Produced from cast aluminum and impact coated, with a non-slip grip, the Hammer frame is balanced to do the work for you. The dead blow connecting stud gives added weight and eliminates bounce. The Precision Steel Rule Diemaker’s Hammer is also the only Hammer with three individual heads—the main head is 1 1/4" x 1 1/4" and gives you plenty of knuckle clearance; the tapered rear head is 3/4" x 1 1/4" and is designed for inserting small knives and punches; and our unique bottom head is 1" x 1 1/4" and is best used for rule setting. All three heads are made of space-aged cast urethane and are easily replaced. We have an optional Main head 2 1/4" x 1 1/4".

With its tough and rugged design and replaceable heads, this may be the last Hammer you’ll ever buy.

Urethane Hammers

Cast Urethane Diemaker’s Hammer
Using space-aged elastomer technology, Bar-Plate has created a revolutionary Hammer of unparalleled strength and performance. Produced from state-of-the-art cast urethane, the new Hammer not only offers a reversible head for superior wear resistance, it won’t flake off onto the die like ordinary rawhide hammers. It’s unique orange color makes it easy to locate in crowded work areas. And best of all, it will outlast a rawhide hammer 5 to 1.

Save your hammer handles and prevent injuries by installing our new bottom head.
