At apx 2:10 you will see Eric's hammers soaking in water. When asked why he soaked his hammers, Eric responded that it was NOT to keep them cool, but rather to keep the handles tight. The constant hammering can cause the handles to loosen from the heads. The wooden handles swell in water, thus keepong the hammer heads tight while Eric works.
