Nechamkin chasing hammer up for grabs at SNAG's New Orleans conference

Be still my beating heart - do some tools send your heart racing? Have you ever met a hammer you didn’t like? This year at the SNAG Conference in New Orleans one of the featured tools up for grabs at the TITH fundraiser is a NECHAMKIN chasing hammer. (Oh, yes!) This is a beautiful, well-balanced hammer that fits right into the palm of your hand. Smooth!

The Tool in the Hat (TITH) fundraiser is an event for both donors and bidders: Donors make it possible for tools of our trade to go from hand to hand; bidders can indulge their obsessive, devoted, fervent, frenzied passion for tools. Everyone is having fun and supports SNAG at the same time. A match made in metalsmithing heaven.

What can you contribute? We are looking for old tools, new tools, metal bits, old books that still have function, unusual materials such as plastics or wood. All odds and ends are welcome contributions, basically anything gently used (or new) that could be of interest to a fellow metalsmith. Look around your shop or studio for something you could share and give. To donate an item, simply sign it up during conference registration or email SNAG Board member Dianne DeBeixedon at at any time. Then drop your item off at the conference desk. Yes, it’s really that easy.

Thank you for your support from SNAG's Board of Directors!
