This mallet is made from Myall and is 150 grams. It is a light weight mallet designed for setting or adjusting blades in wooden planes. A brass retaining nut holds the head onto the handle and has HNT Gordon stamped in it.
We use a head with a heavier wood to the handle to give the mallet balance.
Myall is very similar to the gidgee we use in our hand planes.
I have used this Mallet several times since I purchased it and it performs as I have come to expect of HNT Gordon tools. It feels nice in the hand and is weighted perfectly for setting plane blades. I have been using HNT Gordon tools for a decade now. I have moulding planes, side rebate planes, spokeshaves, smoothing planes and vices. All are superb tools. Great service and great tools from the HNT Gordon team.
Very suitable for its purpose
Surprisingly, the mallet totally changed my enjoyment of using the HNT Gordon planes. Indispensable. I wish I had bought it 10 years ago
The mallet is a little bit lighter than my liking, but overall finish is good.
Bought a plane and setting mallet after meeting Mr Gordon at a wood show. Both do a fantastic job and with a little practice are a joy to use. Tey also look fantastic too.
