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.
The mallet hasn’t missed a beat. Beautiful balance.
Works well on old wooden planes of all sizes
Haven't used it yet but it looks beautiful and is superbly made
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
