Sorbothane Soft-blow Mallet

Sorbothane Soft-blow Mallet

Product Review (submitted on December 5, 2017):
This is a great deadblow mallet. I bought it for use in assembling cabinets for a face-frame cabinet project. The size of the head and density of it makes for solid assured persuasion of the subject parts, with virtually no bounce. I particularly like it as an alternative to a rubber mallet, which is a little hard for the finished wood parts, and as an alternative to denser car-style deadblow hammers, which still present a risk of denting since the heads are smaller than this one. If you have seen Sorbothane shoe inserts, then you know the feel of this kind of material. It is dense and a little softer than rubber, but with terrific damping.

I imagine this would be useful in the glass shop as well. I know someone who works with stained glass that can give some feedback for that application.
