    If anyone out there has a new knock off hammer from an original 330 era tool kit, would you be kind enough to post a photo?

    And, if possible, include a ruler or tape measure in the photo so that I can get a good idea of the size.

    THANKS in advance for any help.

    Hi, 375 - thanks for that information.
    Since I need a number of these, the price is just too high.
    I can easily cast them and that's why I needed photos for some dimensional reference.
    Hopefully someone here can send the photos.

    Can't anyone out there help me out?
    There must be a 330 type knock off hammer that someone could take a few photos and post them.
    I have the materials and the time - all I need are some dimensional references!!

    Thanks in advance, Bob Z.

    May I ask why do you need this information ?
    Are attempting to reproduce them ?
    If so, you might wish re-consider since there seem to be several different entities already doing or have done them, including aforementioned Kilimanjaro Design.
    If you need reference for some other reasons, perhaps easiest/simplest way would be to buy one of these reproductions, take all necessary measurements you need and re-sell the item, even if at slightly discounted price.
    I’d imagine finding an original (NOS ?) in un-used condition could prove quite difficult.

    I think if someone has such a tool it would be very easy to post here some photos with a scale beside the tool

    you are sure those will have same dimensions?

    Yes, theoretically it could be easy, IF someone who often visit this forum has such (un-molested/-used, NOS ?) hammer, has it easily available for photography (not in some far-away storage facility, etc) and is willing to share photos of it...
    ..., hence my suggestion of buying a reproduction, if copying them is OPs objective.
    Romano, that is a fair point.
    I don’t know how accurate they are, but being myself someone who reproduces variety of parts and components for vintage cars (including Ferraris), most which are much more complex & costly to replicate correctly than a two-piece lead hammer, I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t be.
    OTOH, where talking about an item with alleged retail price of only $150 and almost no car or its owner really needs or uses. :confused:
