Ship Mauls (12311 wood, 12315 fiberglass)- Used to plug holes in ships? It's true. Drive the pointed end of the Ship Maul in the leak in the haul (WITH A BRASS HAMMER-don't blow up the ship with one spark). Comes in wood and fiberglass handles.

Backing Out Punches (B&O Hammer or BOPs) - Use to drive out pins that hold together two pieces of equipment-like a backhoe shovel to the arm.
A word about Backing Out Punches. These tools should be struck only with hammers of lesser hardness. DO NOT strike this tool with a steel sledge hammer- the hammer or sledge could explode and/or fragment causing severe injury or death. USE A BRASS OR COPPER HAMMER WHEN STRIKING A PUNCH. We have added a couple of brass hammers to this page that should work fine. Or go to our Brass Hammer page. Also, when you strike steel on steel, you can cause a spark. Brass or Copper hammers reduce that potential because they are non-f
errous (without Iron). 

These are Backing out Punches (BOPs, Knock out Punches, Punches, Pin Punches):
