I Forge Iron



I removed the solid tubing as the connecting rod and made this with a coil spring over a round tube which is over a solid round . This way the spring can compress and allow the hammer to make a full revolution more easily and stressing the motor less.

So Far it seems to work well . I still need to adjust the foot pedal so as not to tighten the belt as if I were trying to stop the motor. more test to follow tomorrow ....only time will tell.

Harley, did you buy plans for the rest of the machine somewhere or is it your own design? I have seen them before but assumed that they where not worthwhile. sounds like you like yours.

I gotta agree with CurlyGeorge about the guard. I had a valve spring on a BMW R65 break under normal use with only 90,000 miles. Pieces can fly when not contained.
