I'm sure others will have specific suggestions... Bumping isn't that interesting to me. But I have done a fair bit. Darn near anything with the right heft will work. Oddly, my most successful bump hammer is my desk stapler.

Hahahahh desk stapler. I am very curious to see what suggestions come in as making a bump hammer has been on my list of tools to make for a while now. Never tried bumping but I figured once Ill get around to making a hammer thats when Ill try.

I know you said you wanted to make a bump hammer, but Peterson has theirs on sale for $6.

Quick note, pleas post pics and I seen Petersons hammer but then you also need to buy the weights and cork right? Peterson started talking about this being the lightest hammer or something and started to confuse a simple hammer product offering variety. If anyone can clear me up plz.

From the site it appears the weights are optional, eg if you want to add more 'oomph' to your bump hammer.

I read that too but why the extra oomph? Seems to me that its a hard light plastic that needs the weights so operate.

I use the Peterson bump hammer successfully without the weights. The weights Peterson sells are just a couple of corks and some bird shot. I think someone could improvise if they wanted to add weight to the hammer.

Yea I do too. Will be picking one up from Peterson as I needed something else to justify the shipping costs.

NorWoodGolf, which Peterson hammer do you use? The tommy hawk, the blue or the white?

I own the blue and the gray bump hammers. I like the blue one the best and I have not added any weight to it.
