How a Vaughan Claw Hammer is Made @mfgday #MFGDay19

Straight claw hammer

Vaughan has been manufacturing hammers in the United states for over 150 years. From the Vaughan website:

Many of what are now accepted as basic hammer designs – from the distinctive curve of the claw to the set of the handle and the shape of the head – were introduced by Vaughan. All are the result of Vaughan’s commitment to constant hammer improvement and extensive field testing.

Throughout our website you’ll find details of the features that make Vaughan professional quality tools special…tools to be proud of.

Balance
Balance is difficult to describe and impossible to formulate, but when a hammer’s got it – you can just “feel it.” A well-balanced hammer can seem to “swing itself” reducing stress on muscles and tendons. The hammer becomes an extension of arm, swinging smoothly and easily, delivering power blows almost effortlessly. Of course, not all hammers have the same feel. Obviously, a 10 oz. finishing hammer feels different than, say, a 24 oz. framer. Proper head-to-handle weight distribution is one of the key factors and Vaughan hammers have it!

All Vaughan hammers are designed with our exclusive CAD/CAM system and extensively field tested, with special attention to the balance that has made Vaughan the choice of the pros.

Vaughan & Bushnell Mfg. Co. was founded in Peoria, Illinois by Alexander Vaughan. It began as a plumbing business, which in those days consisted of digging wells and piping water into the kitchens of the local citizenry. The inventive 18 year old blacksmith had an idea for improving the design of the augers used for digging post holes. He set up a blacksmith shop in a room behind a hardware store owned by Sidney Bushnell and the rest is history. For over 135 years Vaughan & Bushnell Mfg. C has been designing and manufacturing hammers, many of which are now accepted as basic hammer designs – from the distinctive curve of the claw to the set of the handle and the shape of the head – were all introduced by Vaughan. Watch how Vaughan hammers are made.
