When I fitted chrome wires and two-eared spinners I bought the lead 
hammer that everyone else seemed to advertise.  I wasn't very keen to 
use it since the head seemed very hard, and sure enough, the first 
tentative whack left a mark on the spinner.  I carried on using it 
for a couple of years but always with a piece of wood to protect the 
spinners, as the wood got splintered I just chucked it and used 
another piece.

Then I spotted a 'Thor' hammer in Halfords which had a nylon handle 
and a steel head with an aluminium insert in the one side and a nylon 
one in the other.  Not another mark on the spinners in four years.
