I lost my Ideal leather handled electricians hammer a few months back. I checked with the local supply house and Ideal no longer makes them. I also checked the web and could not find any one who still makes them?

Just wondering if anyone knows where I can find one? Maybe new old stock somewhere?

Thanks Ray

Not sure what you mean by an 'electricians' hammer' Ray.
'Estwing' still make leather-handled claw hammers for slaters and carpenters. I have a beautiful 16oz Estwing [rubber-handled version] straight-claw, the best hammer I've ever owned. Not cheap, so keep your eyes on 'em as they grow legs!
Google for a US dealer.

Ray, after a little searching [ Amazon UK ] I found 'Estwing' do indeed still make an electricians hammer with a leather haft- "limited availability" whatever that means.
Seems to be a longer haft and straighter claw- you learn something every day!

Most electricians hammers have a longer nose (to get into places like box brackets and where you need to staple), longer handle and are available only in one lighter weight. Some do have straight claws.

Its been a while since I was there looking at hammers, but I can recall seeing them quite a few times in Big Orange.. They also carried the leather handled hatchet

Estwing discontinued the "electricians" hammer EE16SRS. Only way you will replace it is if you steal one from somebody or get lucky and find one on ebay.

That sucks, I know what it is like to have a nice tool and it ends up missing

Every time I see the title of this thread, I find myself wondering what kind of hammer is used by a leather-handled electrician...
