    Designed for those who are unwilling to learn how to master the use of a hammer.

    way back when i used to work at a school. i had a student (carpentry) who had a hammer just about like that, except the end was round and had a deep ridged waffle pattern on it (to avoid the hammer sliding on the nail) that guy was able to nail at reach height. awesome piece of equipment

    Nice concept, but sharp impacts disrupt magnetism.

    the one that student had, the magnet was strong enough to drive in the first "tap" (the magnet holds the nail, the nail also rest against a solid ridge)(so you don`t have to hold the nail) and then you drive it in with the hammer. esp handy if you are working at heights or bending over.

    Stupid idea. It`s impossible to work with precision...

    Would be better if it were on the side, so that the face of the hammer could be unaltered.

    For those of you saying that nail placement is imprecise, unless you`re doing real crafting woodworking, placement accuracy isn`t that important. It doesn`t matter where I put the nail when I`m roughing out something with 2x4s.

    Finally, I think this would come in really handy for people with only one hand, or who have limited use in one of their hands. My dad`s left arm is paralyzed, and he would really love this hammer.

    As a carpenter I can tell you those have been around for a very long time. They are way too slow to use, a good framing carpenter can sink 3 nails by time you load and start your first nail with that. Besides that`s a finish nail and we brad pusher that does it better.

    Besides the "one-handed-man" argument, this really is not the greatest thing to happen to hammers. I find, even when roughing in 2x4 framing, that nail placement really does matter, especially when toe-nailing. Besides, like Forplay2k said, this would actually be slower if you even have a little experience. I also don`t understand the square head. That`s great for masons, but not for framers.

    One of my hammers has this magnet. I dont use it, because it takes longer and has zero accuracy.

    You`re knocking a f****** nail in, why are you talking about precision?
    It`s not designed for surgery.

    good in some situations, not practical for most, its far faster to tap and slap then load a nail in a slot every time.
