The leather working hammer is used daily in leather shops for tapping two pieces of leather together to adhere the contact cement that is on both leather surfaces. Rapid rivets and double cap rivets are often set by tapping them together with this hammer as opposed to using a rivet setter. Leather folds and braided lace are tapped flat with the leather working hammer
