to days ago the head from my hammer came loose , and one day later it fell of . i am going to repair it because i originally made the hammer when i was 9 years old . and i think it is just a handy little hammer .

i used a big round-flat file to file of the most of the rust . this took me about 30 min but i think it was worth it.you could really speed up this step by using a power sander.

make sure to use dust collection because you don't want to breathe in metal dust

Step 2: Sand the head smooth

Step 3: Gut the grooves for the spline`s
