    Welding up a new model hammer?

    There are a number of gunsmiths that weld up new model hammers to remove the transfer bar and put in a 1/2 cock notch (For SASS competitions) Does anyone here have a diagram of where to add the weld. I have a couple spare hammers that I'd like to try to weld up. Thanks.
