A friend loaned me one of your roofing style hammers a while back and pulled it out tonight. So far all my roof stuff has been done with my one woodworking hammer, I can dig in under a nail heads and pull them out fine. Mostly just use the hammer in the shop turned sideways to knock the woodwork chisels. I dont use finishing nails and fill I clamp stuff.
Your style hammer has a massive head with serations which makes sense. Then it seems to be like an axe at the other end and there is a slot and some holes in it as well.
Sorry to be so green, the slot I take it is to pull nails. Is the hachet part for doing quick woodwork alterations? what are the holes for?
