I live in Contra Costa County, and worked in Petaluma & Santa Rosa, when
the Telecomm Valley boom was happening. I had grandparents at Point Arena
in Mendocino County, and at Forestville, west of Sebastapol. The Mendocino
branch of the family goes back to the 1840s in the cemetary at Manchester.
My dad lives in Lake County, about 45 minutes from John Moorhead, who has
extended a standing invitation to come and visit. Life has gotten in the
way of that, mostly in the form of a beautiful new granddaughter.
Why do you ask?
I'll try to help but first I need to know what a henweigh is. I tried
finding something about it on the internet but to no end. I figure it's
some kind of hand tool. Would it be a plane by any chance. Could you
describe it for me I may be able to find something similar on the internet
and give an answer.
A henway's between three and four pounds.

Welcome to the group (and remember to keep your sense of humor handy!)
Others have answered, and I hope you forgive me for pulling your leg.
It was meant as an initiation, as the older ones welcome the younger

you a beer. Welcome to the wreck. I hope you have a sense of humor,
and use it frequently.
Just be careful if someone asks you for a left handed monkey wrench.

'henweigh' as in "What's a henweigh?" Reply is "About 3 pounds!"
'hammerfour" as in "What's a hammerfour?" Reply is "Pounding nails!"
Right up there with Knock, Knock and "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"
So a henwegh is a type of hammer or a set. when you say pounding nails it
could be a few tools. But normally I don't how to align hammers. They
don't cost too much I just go buy another one. Make sure it's balanced
though. To find a balanced hammer you stand it on the head and if it
balances your good to go. If it falls over then I wouldn't recommend it.
Working with an unbalanced hammer all day reeks havock on your elbow.
