Northtidesix, I will definitely look in to that.

My concern is that this is the hammer, and I am not sure brazing will hold up to the forces generated on that part and that bottom pin enclosure is so fine and those little pieces are nonexistent with the pile I received.

And, I’ll admit it, I am looking forward to the challenge of the process. I haven’t done this level of precision in a while and I get to break out my machinists box. Already sourcing the steel, going to use a 1095 because I can heat treat it and forge the rough shape first ( buying enough for at least 10 of them for the oops factor)
Doc,
I know what you mean about the Ooops! and Challenge. I started out to rescue ONE 1890 Winchester and ONE 1912 Remington. I wound up doing a dozen of each. Needless to say several family members got antique pump .22's for Christmas for a couple of years. ;) The jeweler is just something outside the box I came up with out of desperation. Just bear in mind these projects keep us busy, and it beats the hell out of making coasters out of popsicle sticks in a retirement home.

Yeah, this has a different hammer style than that one, but I appreciate the heads up.
Its always worth an email or a phone call to check. Parts houses often have some parts with insufficient quantity to list on their website.

Numrich Gun Parts stresses that point on their catalog site. I liked the old way of ordering parts from them. Call it in and if they had it they sent it C.O.D. That was a last ditch try at a long-term project. They also sent out a notice if they did not have it.

C.O.D., now there is a blast from the past. I used to order lots of things like that, especially car parts from Summit and Jegs. I think companies getting burned on shipping costs for non payment and UPS drivers getting robbed stopped that.

I did something similar when I was doing my gun parts/lead recycling business. I mail the part or lead to the direct sale customer. If the part met their approval, they mail me a check. If it didn't, they mailed the part back. Same went for the lead bars or sinkers. If they failed to send the check or the part, I threw away their address and blocked the email. I never got stiffed. I was selling the recycled lead at 50% below the going price on ebay. While using the Numrich pricing guide for the gun parts. Not trying to get rich off every transaction, just financing my gun buying habit.;)
