Topic tags/keywords: question mallet

Anyone know where I can get new rubber tips for this old-timey mallet? It had black rubber tips that disintegrated when I last used it.

Welcome to Ljs
Perhaps you could get some rubber and make one. I always use white rubber mallets because they don’t leave black marks on my work.

Those were never designed to be replaceable. That is not that old. maybe 30 or so years.
what a1im linked you to might work.

Perhaps make some from wood, soft or hard depending on actual usage?

You could buy tips made for another mallet
and if they don’t fit, fill the holes with silicone
caulk or rubber cement and drill the size hole
you need.

Cut up a hockey puck on the band saw to make some?

Next time you’re in Lowe’s or Home Depot, go over to where they sell rubber corks and see if any of those would work.

They come in different sizes.

I use them for the tips of my walking sticks.

Have your say...
