I agree with Roper, except back in my framing days we used a 32 oz. Estwings. 1 hit to set, one swing to drive the nail home, thats a 16 sinker. Makes for fast framing. Yes they were expensive but I haven’t framed in about 20 years and that hammer is as good as new. We used them for trim too. Once you wore off the waffle, or as we called them, the meat tenderizer. Nice hammer, really.
