The tale of the hammer is quite true.  Hammers were used for final assembly
of Hasselblad cameras as recently as last year though I understand that
these will not be used in the new plant.  The "great care for detail and
precision" ensured that the cameras were comprehensively adjusted during
assembly -- and this mandated the use of the hammer.
