  1. Congrats on procuring a beautiful hammer! Doesn’t look so compact to me!

    Iron Kiss repair

    Thanks BGD. I do have an inline oiler on the hammer. I’ll check to see that its working and whether it gummed anything up.
  4. My 150lb Iron Kiss keeps crapping out on me. It will work correctly and the make some top end hits and then just sit at the bottom. Air pressure is fine and I suspect roller valve/s. I am not proficient in preumatics and wondered whether anyone could suggest who I might call to fix this for me. I am in Port Orchard WA.

    Double Sided C Frame Press

    Nice! What psi are you running at ? At 10hp 3600rpm 7gpm, I would have thout you would get 40t at 2000psi, not 15

    Pair of ulu’ish knives

    Thanks. I was wondering how you got around the corner!
  7. Well I'm no expert and while I can hear your .mov files, the visual is not coming through for me. On my Kinyon bpm is adjusted by the placement of the roller valves. Did you try lowering the top roller? Is the hammer hitting hard? Hopefully someone with a lot more knowledge will chime in.

    Very nice. great handles. I have drawings of a similar design I had planned to make, but never did. Does your tang extend into the handle past where the shortest cross grain exists?

    What size breaker was required to run that 10hp motor? I assume its 3ph.

    Nicely done. I like seeing a well executed ladder pattern. Great stand!

    Drilled (no crayon) ribbon burner

    Just a thought. If you are not casting the holes with crayons and drilling them instead, why not forgo the casting all together and cut a fire brick to size and drill that?

    Power hammer

    A lot of tool rental places rent machinery trailers that lower to the ground. A 1200lb machine is not too heavy to come a long onto one of these with minimal ramping and the use of some 3/4” pipe as rollers, Egyptian style. Same for getting it off. Keep your lines low as that hammer is top heavy, and work slow (I’m talking about an inch at a time slow) and you’ll be fine.
