Choose between bricklayers' hammers, for shaping and trimming brick, concrete, and masonry tile, and welders' hammers, for cleaning up weld joints and removing rust from a metal workpiece.
With a flat striking face for driving a masonry chisel and a curved blade for chipping mortar from bricks, these bricklayers' hammers can be used to trim, shape, score, break, and cut bricks, concrete blocks, and masonry tiles.
These tools have a pick and a chisel for removing weld spatter and slag and chipping off rust and old paint from a workpiece. Some welders' hammers have handles that can be replaced when worn or damaged, and some have a wire coil handle that dissipates heat from the workpiece to help prevent burns and allows the handle to bend when gripped.
When working in environments that contain flammable solvents, liquids, vapors, dusts, or residues, choose nonsparking picking and chipping hammers made from nonferrous materials such as aluminum and bronze to help minimize the risk of the tool generating a spark while in use.
