Frequently Asked Questions

Where are Halder tools made?

For more than 80 years, Halder’s soft-face mallets and forestry tools have set the finest standard in terms of manufacturing quality. And all of them have the “Made in Germany” label. That’s why Engineer Supply is proud to carry their products in our store.

What size is a Halder hammer?

Halder’s soft-face mallets are available in diameter sizes from 30 mm to 60 mm, with 60mm models coming with rubber inserts as well as in a “stand up” configuration. All of their parts can be replaced or retrofitted, which can provide you with a great deal of savings in cost and resources.

Is a mallet stronger than a hammer?

If you need to drive nails through walls, remove them, or pry things apart, then a hammer would be the right tool. It requires more physical strength and power when you’re using it. It will also leave more marks, scratches, and scuffs when it makes contact with the surface. If you need to drive wooden pieces together or hit a chisel without damaging its tip, then a mallet would be the better choice. Its purpose is to strike a blow onto a soft material without damaging its surrounding area.

What is the history of the Halder company?

The company was founded by a German engineer named Erwin Halder, who patented the SIMPLEX soft-face mallet in 1938. It built its first factory in 1940 after it filed with the Register of Companies. By 1948, Halder manufactured a number of standard parts that were used for cutting, punching, and drawing. Since then, the company has grown and developed into a thriving corporation.
