Its hard to beat a Geisselle

pure, so what did the job require? Is it just a little grinding here and there, more or less in certain areas?

I have a large selection of metal saws, grinders , drill presses and a couple differnt belt sanders at my disposal in my garage , I started to just sand it off with a belt sander with 80 grit but the hammer is pretty hard and gets hot pretty quick so I put a cutting wheel to it and cut it off , cleaned it up on the narrow belt sander and used a polishing belt to take any marks out of it so it looked like its supposed to look with a smooth finish throw a little cold blue on it and it came out like it did .
this is what my hammer looked like before I started . I only did this because I was getting light strikes from tweaking the hammer spring, which in turn didnt have enough ass to swing all that hammer with the extra weight on it . its not for cosmetic reasons I promise

I might give it a try. Do you think a Dremmel can get the job done?

If you use the larger reinforced cutting discs yes, if you just using the little abrasives be prepared to use a bunch of them , Its pretty hard material and cut it slow

Very nice looking hammer, looks like it came from the factory like that! Great

what'd you use to refinish it?
