Step 2: IN THE END

TIME SPENT FINDING PARTS AND BUILDING MACHINE APPROX. 2 HOURS

TIME TO HAMMER COIN 15 MINUTES TO THE POINT I WAS AT END OF VIDEO EXPECTED TIME TO HAMMER TO COMPLETION 30 MINUTES

    The cap screw you use as a hammer appears to be a grade 2, mild steel. Using a grade 8- hardened- would probably do a better, quicker job. Or a 3/4" dowel pin- also very hard affixed to the rod end. Persistence pays, I'm sure you'll have it all in the end.

    thank you for pointing this out. not sure what the life expectancy will be i had thought about heat treating the hammer end or replace it when i find something better.
