What a great find! :clap:
That looks like the electric claw hammer which is more for woodworking. I have the ball peen one but the safety certificate has expired and the leather holster has developed a slight touch of mildew.
I had a matching pair of hens legs, but they seem to have run off. :-**

Coo! Its just like Ebay used to be before they got all serious and up themselves. :shock:

I had one of these electric hammers, got burnt in the fire, now I've only got the head but I'm still looking for the rest of it. #-o If memory serves, although this is the claw version, primarily to be used in carpentry, it can, at a pinch, be used to hit most things. :shock: :domo:

I did have a tin of elbow grease, a sky hook and a skirting ladder, but Gawd knows where they are now. #-o

Vendor says it has been PAT checked but predates elf and safety laws.

It should probably be given a drop test.
Even if manufactured after the health and safety requirement, the handle should be certified as fire resistant.

Yea, but has it got a CE certificate to show its EU compliant so it can be used in foreign parts? Or was that on? That plug top is definitely not to BS 1363! :shock:
