|Publication Date:||1 January 1998|
This Standard provides safety requirements for the design, construction, testing, and use of riveting, scaling and tinner′ setting hammers described below. The names given are those generally recognized; styles are not limited to those named or illustrated (see Figs. 1, 2, and 3).
