I'm gearing up to do some maintenance on a BRP watercraft and I came across this statement in the factory manual:
"3. Using a fiber hammer, gently tap impeller cover to help release it from the jet pump housing"
Here it is in context:
Of all the different manuals and catalogs I've read and jobs I've worked I've never heard the term "fiber hammer". I suppose "fiber hammer" could mean "block of wood used like a hammer", but that's just a guess. I suppose they mean some sort of non-marring hammer, but I'm not sure. Googling "fiber hammer" just turns up hammers with fiberglass handles. McMaster-Carr doesn't list any "fiber hammers" in their index.
What, exactly, is a fiber hammer?
