I have finally got around to making a working prototype of my Bad Hammer design, I have been sitting on that one for quite some time!

As you can tell by the name, it is designed along the lines of Jörg Sprave's famous Hammerhead frame (actually I took Jörg's original drawing, traced the fork on millimeter grid paper and transferred it mm for mm into my CAD program, so it is an exact copy), Unlike Jörgs design it need not be sawed, rasped and filed from a massive 54mm Multiplex chunk but can easily be made from a single 18mm board. It is easy and cheap to make, a rugged, no-frills hard use shooter to always keep in your tackle box, garden shed or car door, just as I like all my designs.

The fork and handle can be sawed out in three different lengths; I strongly recommend you use the longest version for your first Bad Hammer. There is no palmswell included on the template, so please download either my "Bad Company 1.3" or my "Bad Series Palmswells" for one. Any of the four ready made (and one "blank") palmswells will fit. There are building instructions included with the Bad Company that also apply to the building of the Hammer, so it would be a really good idea to download that template in any case.

When you have sawed out both the fork with handle and the palmswell, hold them together and see which position of the palmswell fits your hand best (I recommend you place the top of the palmswell around three millimeters below the fork crotch, just where the rounded part of a not too heavily rounded fork edge begins) mark the position, glue it in place and then cut off any excess bits of handle sticking out at the bottom.

I have banded up my first "Bad Hammer 1.1" with single strand TB Gold 2-1,5cm taper and it shoots 10mm steel like nobody's business. A very nice shooter. Enjoy!

Edit: I have uploaded my new Bad Hammer 1.2 with various changes, among them a longer handle for really large hands and its very own palmswell on the template. The old 1.1 is still available, though.

What's New in Version 1.2 (See full changelog)

  • - no grooves in the fork, decide yourself where and how you want them
  • - more precisely traced fork shape
  • - very long handle, just saw off unneeded length
  • - comes with its own palmswell design, so now you can choose between four



I gotta make one of these. They look so awesome. And i dont have one that is strictly hammer grip.
