All kinds of things can be improvised for a hammer. Try a screwdriver, a small piece of plywood. Anything with a rubber, plastic, or wood tip.
Try 20 oz or 500mL wide mouthed plastic bottle, like the one from 6 pack propel. The neck is too fat on anything larger.
Hold by the body and bump with the lid. It has just the right elasticity. I like it better than my Brockhage. Instead of using a large mass, I hold the bottle by the butt, then with a flick of wrist, I accelerate the tip very fast, then wham.

The stoppers were at my Ace hardware in the section where they sell loose nuts and bolts (in slide-out boxes).
This thing works great. It revealed to me just how little controlled force is required to bump a lock. The force can be controlled by varying the swing and positioning ones thumb at various points along the exposed portion of the hacksaw blade.
It is important to get the screw perfectly centered in the stopper. A trick I used was to trace around the wide side of the stopper, cut out the circle of paper, and fold it in half at different points twice. The point where the creases intersect is the center. Use the paper as a template and mark the center of the stopper by pressing the pointed sheet metal screw through the paper into the stopper.

Yeah, I also ordered from lockpicks dot com. I ordered tomahawk from there and got one within two weeks.
lockpicks dot com is the place to get bump hammers. they have both brockhage and the tomahawk there is a disclaimer but theres no verification of being a certified locksmith or whatever.
