Chipping hammer

Chipping hammerIntroduction
A chipping hammer is a tool used to remove welding slag from a weld and welding spatter from along side welds.

How to use it
Used by carefully swinging and hitting the weld to shatter the slag. To remove spatter, use the wide flat part of the chipping hammer and slide along the surface of the job.

Where to use it
Used to remove slag when standard arc welding is performed as slag is not produced when mig or tig welding is performed. Used to remove welding spatter in all welding processes.

Maintenance
Resharpen the point or chisel edge from time to time when it gets blunt.

OHS issues
Wear safety glasses to avoid getting slag or spatter in the eyes.
