Looking to expand my tools for gun smithing and this hammer looks awesome and it's cheap, and made in USA... seems like very good quality.Smith & Wesson Forum


I'm already messaged him and I am hoping he still makes them so that I can get one or two.

I have something very similar. I was a little surprised when I received mine, as to how small it was. But they don't have to be all that big.....both ends of mine are brass - in fact, the entire head is brass.

I too had one that was similar with a bunch of interchangeable heads. Handy little tool. Unfortunately I managed to leave it in my old house when I moved out. These days I just use a small brass hammer, which is all I really need. There's lots of the ones with interchangeable heads available, and if you google "gunsmithing hammer" you'll see a bunch of options. JAT

Shoo emailed me back. Currently he said he is out but is making them. About 2-3 weeks, he told me to email him to double check.
I'm going to get both the standard size and the mini so I can chuck one in the range bag.

Thanks, Shoo

That really looks familiar, is it the Shoo Bee model? If so he sells on the Sig Forum also, Good Stuff!

Welp as pictured here are a couple pictures I took. This is without question one of the best quality tools I have seen.
This is right there with Snap-On quality, and in some ways I think better honestly. There is WEIGHT to this hammer... it's not light. And it's not too heavy but it does have a good amount of weight so that you are swinging the hammer like crazy, the weight of it will do the work. I got both sizes honestly because I couldn't decide which one to get so figured I'd get use out of both of them. The smaller size I actually prefer when working on the 1911... the larger size probably the AR15 build when I start it...






Size comparison with a pen. I didn't realize how small the smaller hammer was but I love it!


Milling on handle:







Hope this helps someone.
I was tired of seeing garbage when you go and type "gunsmithing hammer" or when you go to sites and see a hammer that looks ok with removable heads, but then all the reviews say it's garbage and made in china..etc. Without a doubt I feel like this should be sold in every store that sells guns...lol
I'm not associated with SHOO in any way but I am a very firm believer that when something is of good quality it needs to be seen by people so they can have something that will last and isn't made in China. I have no doubt that these two hammers will last me the rest of my life.

I paid $70 for both hammers 5 heads (10 total for both hammers) shipped usps priority mail. Very good deal in my opinion!

Standard Machinist tool

-Check in your neighborhood or online for someone who stocks machinists tools. As an apprentice I bought a couple of these in varying sizes and with multiple replaceable heads, mostly non-marring.
-The nylon/Delrin heads must come in 50 grades of hardness; there are varying kinds of brass; a few aluminum, although I never used one & I made up one head from pure lead to give a little extra "oomph" without scarring my pronect.
-Best news: they aren't that expensive.
-Suggestion: check the machinist supply houses for prices BEFORE you go to a specialty gunsmith tool supplier. I bet you'll get a better deal.
