New Hammers!!!

WOO HOO!! I got 7, count 'em, 7 , new hammers in the mail this morning. It's my birthday present to my self, just a day late.

I got 3 new Fretz hammers from Otto Frei! They have this cool discount section with "seconds". These hammers are excellent! The reason they're seconds is something like the wrong color of stain on the handle (I got one of those) or a small blurb where the name is pressed on the side of the head, or a pinhole in the handle. Nothing major, just enough to keep them from charging full price. So I got a #1 planishing hammer, a double ended insert hammer with 9 interchangable plastic tips, and a small embossing hammer. I saved $98!!!

I also got 4 hammers from Harbor Freight! I got 2 new ball peins, 1 stubby and one full size, a 2#brass head deadblow, and a waffle-faced ripping hammer that has a really cool texture on the face.

It's a wonderful day!

Well, it was. Now I have to clean my house and I'd rather take a beating! =0 I HATE housework. Susie Homemaker, I am not!!

HAHA! I remember the hammer story! I used my new Fretz hammers this morning and I'm in love! The faces of the hammers are so perfect and smooth. They are awesome! You'd never know they were seconds.

Happy birthday once again! LOL..I wished you before your birthday and now after it, but not on the actual day :-P.

I need to get me some hammers too :).

Hey, I came to see your first pair of hoops! Where are they? Yeah, great minds do think alike! LOL! We both made our first hoops today! I'm not very pleased with my hoops, so I think I'll make a few more till I like something.
