Two must-have tools in the workshop are a hammer and a mallet. Both of these tools serve a similar purpose to deliver a sudden impact to a solid surface. A hammer has a metal head with a claw on one end and a smooth impact surface on the opposite end and is commonly used to drive nails, forge metal and to remove objects from wood or a similar substance. A mallet has a head made of rubber and is used to deliver a softer blow to an object creating a positive drive.
