PEDDINGHAUS HAMMER

Marking: "300" Cogwheel, note: gear had 13 cogs

Note: any hammer with "DIN" marking is not original Pre-A. The "DIN" engraving indicates 1960's or newer. In addition, the newer hammer's gear cog engraving had 16 cogs.

Decal: Peddinghaus decal

Size: "The handles were up to 300mm in length and made from either ash or hickory to DIN standard 5111." -R.A.

Note on Length of Hammers: Spacing in the pocket of each of the 4 versions of the Burgundy Bags were as follows:

Version 1 - 1949-1951          space is  285mm

Version 2 - 1952                   space is 280mm 

Version 3 - 1952-6/1953      space is 285mm

Version 4 - 7/1953-12/1953 space is 285mm

(more precise measurements will be taken and posted)

DIN standard 1041

Early Hammers with the DIN marking did not have the "DIN" engraved in the face of the hammer, rather they had a "DIN 1041" Decal applied to the hammer as evidenced by these photos courtesy of Victor Ingram. Note that there are 13 cogs on the cogwheel engraved on the hammer face. (Note: correction to # of cogs),

Hammer Uses B13.jpg

USES:

The long-discussed topic of the purpose of the hammer was concluded to be, to break the beads of the tube-type tires. Thanks to research provided by Victor Ingram, we see the Hammer utilized in several repairs in the 1954 Porsche Workshop Manual:
 

                    B13 Removing and Installing Door 

                    T28 Renewing broken spring clamps

                    T33, T34 Installing wheel weights

                    L35, L36 Starter repair
