HEBRON, IL - Meeting the demands of professional carpenters who prefer the comfort and balance of a curved handle, Vaughan & Bushnell is adding a curved fiberglass hammer to its line of Blue Max(TM) California Framers®.

Vaughan says these pros will want to "test drive" this new curved design of its 21-ounce fiberglass handle Blue Max(TM) because it allows a more natural alignment of the wrist and forearm to minimize fatigue and long term risk of arm injury. Sting is further reduced with a shock-absorbing hollow core handle.

All Blue Max(TM) Hammers feature Vaughan's exclusive Head-Start (TM) magnetic nail-holding notch for increased reach and one-handed nail starting.

For greater accuracy the new Blue Max(TM) provides an extra large, milled striking face and a high impact overstrike guard for increased handle protection.
