I suppose a hammer is among the last things one would write a review about. Once you get past stuff like balance and material (cast? Forged?), there's not a lot to talk about unless the thing falls apart in normal use - yes, it's happened. And, other than little design tweaks here and there, there's not much new under the sun with a tool that normally has no moving parts. Except for this one. The timing couldn't have been better, either: I've been tasked with removing molding from a few storage closets that shouldn't have had them installed in the first place, and, amazingly, I didn't have a single pry bar to my name. since I recently bought a Craftsman air compressor and air tank from Sears, I figured I'd check them first before the usual online suspects. And I came across this. Brilliant...and *no one's* come up with this idea before? I like the fact that, in addition to both the degree and ease of adjustability, there's very little play in the mechanism, which initially was a concern. Haven't used the magnetic nail-starter, but it looks pretty well thought-out as well. After what seems to me like a long time in the wilderness, it's nice to see Craftsman/Sears starting to get its mojo back with products like this. Recommended.
I though this was a good buy, but the quality is not what it should be. It does hold the nail to start, but it is not straight and falls off the hammer. It may be ok for taking things apart?
I bought it and never received any reminder to pickup the item!
This is an awesome hammer! Solid and heavy! Love the mini nail pull and the ability to adjust the claw angle. Gets the job done right! Snagged this on a sale!
