Nail hammers.
The straight out nail pulling hammers allow you to tear nails very close to the walls because the handle is quite straight but they have difficulty getting the nails out. Curved purlin hammers easily tear off nails but they must not be close to the wall.

Nail pullers are the everyday companions of carpenters and joiners.


Builder : Person who builds and therefore includes many trades. Carpenter, joiner, formworker, mason, roofer, laborer and all the people who designed the project.

Carpenter: From documents from architects, the carpenter designs the works to be carried out. designs, draws and produces the entire structure, from the choice of raw materials to full-scale assembly. The carpenter studies and executes the frameworks which will serve as support for the joinery and the roofs of the buildings.

Carpenter: From plans, the carpenter creates the exterior (windows, shutters) and interior (stairs, doors, cupboards, parquet floors) of homes, shops and offices. On the site, he also installs the elements he prefabricated in the workshop.
If wood remains his material of choice, the carpenter also uses plastic, aluminum, composite materials ... which broaden his field of activity. Thus, it is increasingly called upon for insulation, soundproofing and waterproofing work. It also uses more and more materials manufactured in mass distribution (doors and windows).

Formworker: He produces formwork for certain parts of the construction of a new concrete building: foundations, walls and floors. The formworker can also make concrete slabs, stairs and beams.

The formwork is the assembly of wood to make a waterproof mold that will contain the concrete.

Estwing: beauty, efficiency, durability, balance.

The most durable hand tools have been made since 1923, by the Estwing family.
The Estwing material .... a quality benchmark for nail tools for the woodworking industry.
The tools are forged in one piece from very high quality steel. The molded nylon or crimped leather handles are made by a process that allows for a very long service life.

All tools with nylon handles are now produced with the new Estwing shockproof system. The reduction of vibrations due to impacts and transmitted in the handles of the tools is the best solution on the market.
