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.

A closeup of on of those disks would make everything clear. They're not show quality at present but they have a lot of potential. Even for some welding.

Better to be beat on than beat... [mumble mumble] Hey! How about those wheel wells?

Haiku are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense
