Council Tool DF Sledge Hammer 36″ Wooden Handle


Council Tool DF Sledge Hammer 36″ w/ Wooden Handle

  • 4#/6# double-face sledge hammer with hickory handle.
  • Forged tool steel head, Made in the USA, with clear lacquer head to deter rust.
  • Striking face is precision machined with proper radius and chamfer (bevel), providing safer performance.
  • Heat treated after machining for increased depth of hardness. (Turning after hardening looks more attractive (on competitor’s tools) but leaves less depth.)
  • Heat treatment produces fine grain structure and Rc 46-54 (Rockwell) for safety and toughness.
  • 36″ American-made hickory handle, kiln dried before turning. Eye section is then dried below 10% moisture content prior to assembly.
  • The handle is hydraulically inserted into the head and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge, providing a very secure mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″ to 1″ of handle length is removed during assembly.
  • Meets or exceeds ASME B107.54-2001.
