What size framing hammer?


Estwings and fords are for homeowners who dont know how to pull out a nail with a wooden hammer without breaking it

ya got to roll with the punches. I see you are really new so understand this:

we have fun here razzing each other and that is all my post was; all in fun.

personally, I have seen all levels of carpenters use estwing. just like a ford or anything else, it comes down to personal preference and if they like them, it's fine with me 'cuz I buy what I like too, regardless of what anybody else thinks.

that is why I still drive a Yugo

Those steel handled Estwings are what Labourers use to clean forms and pull nails...
