I need to modify these dies to a more friendly (to me) size, test and hook up the oiler, put the treadle on and build a platform to make the dies a comfortable working height.

This may make it simpler for folk to see your hard work.

Congratulations Dave, you have got to be one happy man.
The hammer seems to be running very well.

Is it that high because you havent 'sunk' the anvil ? ( I believe the 'IFI' terminology is 'outlaw style' install?)
Now, Forging videos please !

Kerry.... My 15HP converter brought the hammer up easily. I put a compressor unloader on it, but didn't need to use it... (at least not yet, maybe when it's cold out).
John N.... The base for the hammer is steel plate (which just sits on bare ground (rock dust)), so the base of the anvil is even a little higher than the floor. The hammer frame is mounted on "C" channel. I will be building a platform to stand on when I forge. The first video is very benign because I still have work to do on the hammer. I will be posting forging videos later....
Monstermetal.... Yes... I think it's kind of an addiction once you start...
