It sure looked like a typo to me. A silversmith will shape a piece with hammers not unlike those in a body and fender shop, and then switch to a set of planishing hammers and bucks. They may refine the shape slightly, but their job is to flatten all the tiny imperfections to match the polished hammer face. This is the impact version of burnishing, and both are alternatives to polishing, an abrasive process.

There is no excuse for a land vehicle to weigh more than its average payload.
