First let me state that the primary reason I have these short hammers is two fold. First, I use them to build bird houses. The houses I build are too clunky to use a tack hammer but at the same time I have found it awkward to use a standard sized hammer on the things. Second is the fact that my wife has smaller hands than I do and in her never ending redecorating projects she uses a hammer quite a lot. These hammers suit her hands well. Please keep this in mind as references I make are based upon these two facts. Others may have other uses and need them for other reasons.
The hammer being reviewed is the Maxcraft 60626. It is being compared to the Great Neck 21000 and the Sheffield 58550.
First, all of these hammers are very close as to measurements. There is a matter of about .10 inches in length variation between the three. All are classified as 8 oz hammers. All have the magnetic grove nail starter.
All there of these hammers cost within a dollar of each other with the exception of the Sheffield which on average is about three dollars more than the other two. The cost much depends upon if you find these on sale locally. In lieu of my findings in evaluating these hammers, I suspect that you are paying the few dollars more for the Sheffield 58550 simply due to the brand name.Read more ›
Small hammers are necessities around the home and workshop.
I’m not saying that you can’t hang a picture with an Estwing, “Made in USA,” Framing Hammer. However, having a little experience at repairing sheet rock, wallpaper or paneling might come in handy.
The MAXCRAFT 60626 8-oz. Stubby Claw Hammer from Amazon is my choice of a compact hammer for workshop, vehicle and “catch-all kitchen drawer.”
I call it my little ergonomic hammer because it fits my hand so well.
WARNING: AVOID CHEAP TUBULAR HAMMERS.
One thing I’ve learned is that most cheap hand tools today do not last. They are dollar-store trinkets made in China.
I had a dollar-store hammer for driving small finishing nails and hanging honey-do items. I was softly driving a pin-sized nail when the hammer head came UNGLUED from the thin tubular metal handle and nearly NAILED a cat. If that had happened, I would have been next in line ... and it would not have been an accident.
Such cheap tools are over priced at a dollar...and dangerous.
If you start out buying quality hand tools like Stanley, which I do, they will last you a lifetime and you can leave them in your will.
aand I needed a smaller hammer --it fits the bill.
I gave it 3 stars because I'm pretty handy guy and the nail starter piece seems like a great idea to save some sore fingers. Especially for my wife who is afraid she'll break a finger when she is starting a nail. Both of us can't seem to get a hang of the nail starter.
As a plain old little hammer it is 5 stars. And If I am in a place where I need to pound in 100 nails at a time I might get a gang of the nail starter piece and learn to love it. However I don't have that need so I won't get the training time to adjust to the nail starter, so I'll just start nails the old fashion way and try to avoid the fingers and thumb.

Perfect size and weight. Who wants to bring a big hammer camping or to the lake or to the soccer game to stake down your tent or shade? No one. This is perfect.Published 5 days ago by Heather Brown
Instead of bringing the bigger and heavier hammer to the roof in doing repairs, this hammer is light, functions like the same and is actually good enoughPublished 6 days ago by David Lee

What I found great about this item was that it works well enough in nailing small nails. However, aesthetic-wise,it wasn't what I expected to be.Published 15 days ago by Thomas
