Quick Change Power Hammer Dies


knots

Quick change power hammer dies for my air hammer. I designed and fabricated these hammer dies to accommodate my need to be able to rapidly interchange forging dies . They also will hold an infinite variety of standard and custom fuller dies. These dies are easy to change and have proven durable for my hammer and applications.

Are you using the cap-head screws just as set screws? How well does it hold the die tops? Do the tops ever work loose?

I had thought about doing something similar with pins in the die tops and cap-head bolts coming in from the sides of the bottom die. However I was worried about the tops coming loose and my idea of a fix was going to be to ream a taper hole in the pins and then turn a taper on the end of the cap-head screw so it snugs the tops down as you tighten the screws. However it would make for more work when making a new set of tops.
