Hand‑operated tools (ICS 25.140.30)
DEAS 1021‑1:2019 Hammer — Specification — Part 1: Steel hammerhead (8 page(s), in English)
This Draft East Africa Standard specifies technical requirements, methods of sampling and testing of hammers with head made of steel. It applies to hammers only used to strike items having a maximum hardness of 46 HRC. This Standard does not apply to steel hammer heads with a head mass of less than 100 g.
NOTE: Striking items of a greater hardness is liable to cause chipping, this necessitates choosing hammers with properties different from those defined in this Standard.
