So I have been collecting Snap-on body hammers for a few years, and I almost have the full and complete set. I recently won two hammers on eBay, now I only have one remaining! The first is a BF610 shrinking hammer, which has one square and one round face. This hammer is still available new today, but it's over $100 and it is a shape that I will never use. I have been watching eBay for years for a super cheap one, and I finally found one for $14 shipped!
This model is an un-dated Blue Point, I think it's probably from the 1950s.
The second hammer is a BF619. As far as I know these were only branded as Blue Point, never Snap-on. I don't know what era these were made, but I think they were all pre-war.
The only hammer I have left is the BF635 door skin hammer. This is another one that's still available today, but I'm waiting for a cheap one to come around.
More new tools! I ordered a Lancaster shrinker and some 1/8" cleco pins. I got another set of $5 imported Cleco pliers because my last $5 imported pair was total crap. These are even worse. I have searched high and low for a decent quality version of these pliers, and they don't seem to exist. I think the pros use a pneumatic tool.
I welded up a stand to hold the shrinker in my vise. I don't have room to store a standalone floor-mounted setup, so this will do for now.
I've prepared the shop for a weekend of metal shaping, I plan on doing a lot of rust repair on my old Ford.
