<p>Interesting design, looks like it could be a pretty effective power hammer.</p><p>Biggest concern... there are no SAFETY GUARDS!</p><p>As the design stands, the rear linkage could easily severely injure or kill someone should it break off during use (this can, and has happened with similar designs). If it does break off, it will flail around and could strike or impale the operator. </p><p>A sturdy safety cage around the rear linkage (in front and behind) would be a must for this design to be considered safe enough to operate. </p>
<p>Awesome plans, thanks for the hard work.</p>
Step 6 and 7 are the same. The designs have everything, except the arm for the hammer itself. I believe that is step 6. Or Sheet 6 of 17.
Nice plans but as said above, no text. Perhaps this might help...http://www.appaltree.net/rusty/index.htm
Its actually called an oliver hammer if im not wrong..the springs prevent the hammer to come crashing down on the work piece like so...&gt;
Again, a wonderful and interesting thing, ans again the same problem, NO TEXT. Please, please, PLEASE put down some text in every step describing how to build it. I WANT a power hammer, but without critical details like what the parts are and the relative sizes of the parts, I AM TOTALLY UNABLE TO BUILD THIS.
i remember seeing plans for something called a donkey, or trip hammer, press the foot lever, the pivot changes, and the hammer comes down, let go and it goes back up, some metal bars, and a long spring. sure, it'd be a lot of stomping, but there would be no messing around with electricity.
