Sudo Mallet by vik May 24, 2013


This is a two-part functional mallet, emblazoned with "sudo" - the Linux command for "super user do" which informs the machine to do the next command with all the might and authority of a super-user.

As with traditional mallets, the shaft and head are separate and are a wedging fit. This also allows the printing laminations to be arranged for maximum strength (it works fine with Diamond Age PLA). Inside the head are filler holes that allow you to weight the head with ironsand or lead shot etc.

The logo may be changed for other words if you wish.

Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of sudo.
