The neatest, handiest hand tool you ever saw. I use mine as a miniature hammer, a dolly, a line-up punch, and as a forming roll. It has been with me since 1972. OH…what is it?
A long, tapered, hardened steel punch that looks kind of like a huge knitting needle.
Weighs 1 lb., 12" long, full length taper, Knob on big end is 1.5 in diameter.
Below are photos of using the Marlin Spike
I used the head of the spike in conjunction with the spoon- like this- to level up and planish out
this Gray & Davis headlamp.
Ever so rarely will I need to "pick" up a tiny low spot, and rather than banging around with something heavy
and clumsy, I use the spike like this. Very accurate method uses inertia to lift up those teensies- a method
used by some pretty sophisticated metalmen, I might add.
Used like this, the spike becomes a mini-hammer to reach deep inside narrow openings and ding out those dents. And then I use the combination of spoon and spike to planish all the way out to a nice finish.
Go ahead and use it as a punch or driver. The head is oversized so I never have to look when striking it,
and that keeps my attention on hitting the dang target!
