    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.

    Well, the design does have a few flaws, and there's no real help as far as text, or part numbers or anything like that. It needs a safety cage of some kind around that rear linkage, as mentioned above, or it could be very dangerous if there were a failure.

    Interesting design, looks like it could be a pretty effective power hammer.

    Biggest concern... there are no SAFETY GUARDS!

    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.

    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.

    That's what I thought when I was looking at the design. I don't know anything about these hammers, but I know mechanical stuff, and could see that if one of a couple of crucial connections failed, it could be very dangerous. Thanks for saying this. It makes me glad I could spot the flaws in the design.

    I know you probably forgot this comment about 7 years, 11 months, and 29 days ago (in other words, almost immediately after you wrote it), but do you have any more information about the olive hammer you mentioned here? I'm learning, and would love to be able to put together something like it (I do have a background in mechanic work and metal fabrication). Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    Hello my name is Alex, I am a blacksmith in Oregon and I am looking into building my own power hammer. The plans provided here are incredible but I am have some difficulties decifering some of the text in the pictures when it comes to the electrical components. Would your father be willing to communicate with me via email? It would be very helpful to have some of the info in writing so I can refer to it when I need to.

    Hello, great plan. For any technical taught person easy to understand. Was there any specific design for the spring/mass ratio or the exitement/spring/mass ratio? Is this there exactly this version showed in the linked video (step 18)? Do you have a 3D Model (.stp) available?

    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.

    Can you not figure it out by looking at each of the eighteen steps?

    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.

    I'm trying to find the leaf spring for this. I've tried the usual, Tractor supply, auto parts stores and so on. What need is a part number or yr make and model of the vehicle to get the correct springs? Any suggestions or ideas?
