    About Eastwood 7-Piece Hammer & Dolly Set

    These hammers are powerful auto body tools made from high carbon steel, and are precision balanced for optimum impact. Each head is precision-machined, polished, hardened and heat-treated for a lifetime of service and reliability. Strong fiberglass handles with thick rubber grips add unmatched durability.

    The three dollies have been designed to work on almost every surface angle and contour. Each is hardened and hand-ground, then tumble-polished, for a smooth forming surface. The dinging spoon is also heat-treated and hand-ground for a straight and level hammering surface.


    Applications

    • Pick Hammer – Blunt point for raising low points and finessing character lines. Smooth, general-finishing face.
    • Cross-Chisel Curved Hammer – Curved chisel head provides access to tight inside corners. Smooth, convex face for general finishing.
    • Shrinking/Skinning Hammer – Cross-hatched face for shrinking work on large, flatter surfaces. Skinning head for installing door skins, working high crown areas and character lines.
    • Dinging Spoon – Offset handle and sharp edges for accessing sharp ridges and lines. DO NOT use as a pry tool.
    • Heel Dolly – Works well on larger curved surfaces and sharp inside corners.
    • Toe Dolly – For smoothing larger expanses. Sharp edges for corner work, and straight edges for working flanges. Thin for access in tight areas.
    • General-Purpose Dolly – Cantilevered edges for access to deeply recessed corners and lips. Integral hand-hold and mass are ideal for back-up on heavier hammer strikes.

      Aside from auto body repair and metal work, this hammer and dolly set can be also used for metal forming and shaping, general-purpose body repair, and custom fabrication.

    Hammer face broke within an hour of use (Posted on 2/11/14)

    Let me preface this by saying that I am an avid Eastwood supporter and a loyal customer for years. My wife purchased these for me for Christmas 2012, but I just barely got around to my project last weekend. I literally had less than an hour working with this hammer when the head just fell onto the floor.

    While the price is great, it does not do a lot of good if the product cannot withstand normal use. I do understand that it is out of the warranty period by two months, but it is a hammer! I'm sorry that Eastwood has to see this posting on a product with their name on it. I'm going to have to think twice before getting Eastwood brand again.

    The hammers are decent enough. The dollies need a lot of work to be usable and my spoon was basically junk.

    Eastwood didn't even reply to my email so I guess they're not concerned.

    If you want real pro quality spend the money on Martin?
    a nice set for the price (Posted on 5/25/13)

    I ordered this set on sale price and am quite happy with them. When I attended a Gene Winfield metal working class he recommended them. He did show us how to dress the faces of our hammers to take out imperfections and stressed that this needed to be done on all body hammers on a regular and continuing basis. I'll spend some time perfecting the finish of these before they get used. They are hard to get out of the foam but will go on the hammer rack on my work station so that doesn't count.

    It doesn’t matter what product you’re talking about. You can’t buy high quality at low prices. It simply doesn’t work that way. I bought this set not expecting the quality of Martin tools, but rather expecting the quality of a Chinese product and that is exactly what I got. The hammers are OK, but as others have mentioned, the dollies are marginal. They very uneven and wavy as expected. It’s like someone coming to my shop and telling me that they want a good, cheap paint job. My answer has always been; pick one, cheap or good!

    after reading the reviews Iwas expecting better quality from Eastwood.The hammers, toe and heal dollies are fine, however the machined surfaces on the general purpose and dinging dollies are a rollercoaster of lumpy junk. if you use these tools you will make more work for yourself.
    Great Buy! (Posted on 4/7/13)

    After reading some of the reviews, I was concerned that the quality of the dollies would not be that good. Whatever the problem was, Eastwood worked to get it corrected, because, these hammers and dollies are excellent!

    After reading some of the reviews I was expecting the tools to have some problems, but knowing that Eastwood would stand behind their product, I ordered them. When they arrived I inspected them thoroughly, and was amazed at the quality! The dollies were perfect, as were the hammers! It seems as though Eastwood went back to their supplier and got the earlier problems corrected. And here I thought I'd have to spend a lot of money to get a decent set of hammers and dollies. Thanks Eastwood!

    Well after waiting 7 day's for these tools.
    I was put back a bit with the garbage quality I have been presented with.
    These tools are CHINA made and you can clearly tell by the quality that they came from CHINA.
    The Dolly face has lumps and voids in the surface. Using this would simply not work as the uneven bumpy surface would simply transfer to the metal being worked.
    I could machine the surface flat but that's not the point.

    VERY DISAPPOINTED .
    I'm calling Eastwood to see if a return can be made or replacement of the Dolly alone.
    Just another stall on my project.
