Fretz Extra Large Raising Hammer
The HMR-305 is a broad faced raising hammer that moves the metal quickly when the metal is hammered from the outside of a broad shape. The metal is compressed down to the stake and is left in a relatively smooth condition when compared to bowls or hollowware that is raised with a narrow crosspein. The HMR-305 is often used for angle raising with a R-101 Raising Stake.
