      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

CT Hammers

Recommended Posts

While I'm on a roll asking newb questions... can anyone help me with fitting CT hammers to Nomics? The bolt holes do not align and probably need ~2mm of filing to fit. Should I file the hammer or the pick... or neither? I'm not sure which generation CT hammer I have though I bought them last season and I have current generation Nomics.

file the back of the pick. Filing the hammers would be really gnar.

 

I think there's an article on coldthistle explaining the process.

I thought there was an article as well but I lost patient after sifting through the 11th post about how his hammers are superior to petzl's;)

File the back of the pick down close to the bolt hole. It will be pretty close, but will have a little metal left to close it off. Takes a little time, but if you go slow you can get a good flush fit. You might have to slightly bevel the contact side of the pick to match the machining of the hammer to get it to seat flat. Go slow and check it frequently as you get close to where you want it. They are machined to flush mount once the pick is filed right.

 

I heard the new ones are machined to fit the pick without having to do this.

If you are still looking for direction why not ask Dane? If you write him on his blog I expect you'll get prompt help.

Why no email Nate? May be all those comments as why the hammer is better is why you bought them :)

 

On your version, from last season, cut the picks. 5 min job. DO NOT cut the hammer.

 

FWIW I am just now starting to ship the last batch of hammers for this season. I have 20 pairs left. So they won't last long. These you don't cut, and they drop into old or new Nomics and the newest Quark or Ergo with the current picks.

It was an easy mod... I'm not sure it was five minutes but I was measuring in beers not minutes so the timeline isn't clear;)

 

I've got seven days in the Can Rockies starting Sunday so I'll have plenty of time to break these in...

just out of curiosity, why weren't they machined to fit without a mod in the first place? extra weight? stronger hammer? just because?
