This is a simple model of Da Vinci’s cam hammer designed for students to interact with and name the simple machines in it.


  • Laser cut wood parts to assemble a self-standing hammer.
  • Dowels necessary to complete model


When  Eugenie’s 7th grade History students were learning about the age of discovery, we used the opportunity to teach them about simple machines.

This simple hammer was designed to follow a sketch from Da Vinci’s notebooks.  Can you find the inclined plane?
