SPECIAL HARDENED TUNING HAMMER: The special hardened tool steel tuning tip is designed to withstand stress and pounding to set tuning pins and locks into position with a machine screw and lock washer.
STAR TIP TUNING HAMMER: Attached with a #2 size tip, which is the most common and fits practically all piano tuning pins. The part of the tool that screws onto the end of the head and fits over the tuning pin is known as the tip. The part of the tip that fits over the pin is usually shaped like a star and is made to fit square pins. The star form was designed in order to allow for more angles on the tuning hammer.
WELDED 15 DEGREE HEAD ANGLE: The head is the part of the tuning hammer that attaches to the handle. It is threaded so it screws onto the end of the handle which is also threaded. The angle of the head determines what to what degree the handle will extend away from the tuning pins. This tuning hammer head is welded on with a 15 degree angle which will extend the handle further away from the pins. The longer the head is, the further the handle will be from the tuning pins.
