British Museum Tour and Falcon Training: New Week Kids Activities

The external resemblance of a rubber mallet with a hammer does not mean that tools are used equally. The impact element made of rubber acts on the processed material without damaging its structure.

What it is used for

The main purpose of the tool is to create mechanical stress in cases where blows with an ordinary hammer can harm the material being processed. The mallet has found application in straightening metal sheets, when carrying out roofing work.

I use it when laying paving stones, laying laminate. Using the tapping method, it is possible to fit a piece of masonry to an already laid element. When used for floor or wall tiles, an even distribution of the adhesive mixture under the finish is achieved.

Due to the softened contact with the surface with a rubber hammer, metal parts are formed. For example, body straightening. To increase the degree of impact on the working surface, it is recommended to choose a tool with a wooden head.

It is impossible to describe all the areas of application of the rubber mallet. The device is in demand in private households and large-scale production. It is an irreplaceable thing in the furniture industry. By tapping the parts to be joined, it is possible to achieve the maximum tightness. Carpenters use the tool in combination with a chisel or chisel. Locksmith works are performed with the participation of various machines.

Design and specifications

The mallet is designed primitively. Outwardly, it is similar to a hammer, but the parameters of the striker are slightly increased. The tool is controlled by the handle. It is made from wood, polymer materials and hard rubber. There are also metal handles. The shape of the part is often rounded, but there is also an oval, rectangular one. The last option is not convenient.

When choosing wood, you should take into account the density and hardness of the material. Preference is given to such species as oak, birch, etc.

The striker is the working element of the tool. Other materials are also used for its manufacture. It can be either wood or rubber. The white rubber striker, in contrast to the black analogue, does not leave marks after contact with the working surface. The shape and size depends on the purpose.
