Did you forget to answer my question about the epoxy you put on your handle? If I ask you over at the other forum will you tell me?

Hi.

When I frame, I use a 28oz Estwing with a serrated head. That is if I am not using my old trusty Stanley Bostitch SB80 framing gun. It is steel shafted with a nice composite grip.

I try to do 3 licks but that can get you into trouble sometimes.

They make a "california" framing hammer that actually can get the nail down in just one lick. But Ive only seen a couple of "Jedis" accomplish this.

I use an Estwing (28 oz. framer) 'cause I'm Old Skool and I like my hammer to be indestructible (but those Stilletos do sound nice ).

Though honestly, first thing I reach for are my guns.

The Estwing is more for "negotiating" with the work.

I'm a three licker (plus one to grow on), or one pop, my choice.
