Punching precise nail holes
Mustad forepunches are available in 2 models for punching either E-head or City-head nail holes. Both types have a wooden handle, firmly mounted in the hammer head with a ring wedge. This makes for an easy replacement of the handle and maintenance. The head of this hammer is made of air-hardened steel and should not be cooled in water. In general, these tools should be used at low forging temperatures, between 600˚C – 700˚C.
