Axminster Store - Back to Basics - Get Hands On With Hammers

Join us for the first in our ‘Back To Basics’ series. In March, we have our first in the series with all our stores focusing on Hammers. Our in-store experts will provide a detailed demonstration of all popular hammer styles - describing their unique features and use in a variety of applications. We’ll look at the materials used in the manufacture of heads and handles and consider characteristics such as weight, balance, grip and striking action. Don’t miss this chance to get ‘hands on’ with a wide range of some of the world’s best-known hammer brands - as we go back to basics with these very familiar yet seldom explained hand tools.

Our knowledgeable team of experts can provide you with professional advice... Matthew Youngs (Manager) & Matt McAuley (Deputy Manager)
