  1. Hi Phill

    Beaver here again i have decided where in my work shop im mounting my 2 CWT inslide Massey hammer I am going to mount my anvil on two thicknesses of 12 mm thick new conveyor belt and i think i will put one layer under the hammer body on top of foundations. I am also planing on using conveyor belt around the edge of the hole to isolate my floor from the hammer foundation/anvil block. The plan is to have a hole 2000 long 1500 wide and 2000 deep which is 6 cu metres. What are your thoughts thank you Beaver

      Changed my mind and Im now doing two piece mount/foundation on some sort of isolation

      Hey Beaver, never done a 2 piece foundation, so I am clueless.  I did remove my spare 5cwt from a 2 piece foundation/inertia block, it seemed to move around a lot more than I would have expected.

      Good luck.
