Stanley Hits Straight-On With FatMax® Framing Hammers
FatMax® Framers Now Offered With Straight Hickory Handle

SUMMARY: Stanley expands its line of FatMax® Framing Hammers to include two new straight-handled versions of the current 22 oz., ax-handled hickory framer. The new hammers have all the innovative features and benefits found in the previously released ax-handled versions. These include the specially designed magnetic nail starter for one hand nail setting, the oversized steel forged head designed to increase the “sweet-spot” rim-tempered edges to reduce any potential for chipping and a checkered face to increase overall striking performance. These all-natural, hickory handled- framers are assembled with a double-wedge, head-to-handle assembly for maximum control, and they can be purchased with or without Stanley’s overstrike protection plate to meet the demands of those who rely on wood-handled hammers.

Orlando, Florida, January 13, 2005 – Stanley (NYSE: SWK) responds to the needs of the professional framer with the addition of two, straight-handled FatMax® Framing Hammers; now available with or without overstrike protection.

“With the introduction of this hammer, Stanley answered the call of our professional customer base. Our research clearly identified a segmented marketplace; where end user preference among pros was split between those that prefer ax-handled hammers and those who prefer straight-handled hammers. We are simply responding to the needs of our customers,” said Tim LeBeau, Director of Global Product Management at Stanley.
