"The big advantage these vintage hand held planishing hammers have over most of the more massive stationary bench mount
units manufactured today is their versatility. Not only can they be bench mounted for stationary work, they are also light-weight
and portable for hand held operation right on the automobile body, fender, hood, etc. It is with this versatility in mind
that the Desert Hybrids hand held tubular planishing hammer was developed."
