  1. Hi all, I’m sorry for what are probably very stupid questions, but this is my first power hammer and I’m a little confused on a few points. So after a lot of help and advice from very nice people on this site I bought a used C-41-15 Anyang hammer connected via a VFD to a single phase system (will be all hooked up by a professional electrician on Monday). The hammer however has been slightly modified and I wanted to check a few points. First the Hammer control seems to have been connected to the foot pedal in such a way that the idle run, top set and light auto settings are impossible to use (below). The silver handle will not go any higher as it it is stopped by the bar connecting it to the foot pedal. Is this normal? The manual says that the hammer should always be started in its highest position but thats not possible now. Also does this mean the hammer can now not be held in the top position? The hammer was also supplied with 2 c shaped bits of flat metal, what are these for? You can also see the dies are in a diagonal position, can they be repositioned so I can feed work in from the front? The lubrication system does not seem to match the manual, I understand from the seller that it was modified to fix inherent problems in the earlier models. I assume that I still just fill it up until Its half full on the round indicator, or should it be full? Can it be overfilled? The manual talks about excess oil accumulating in the sump that must be drained. How will I know when to do this? Can the oil be reused? The electrical doing the work has asked for an electrical diagram that shows him how to connect it. I have checked the manual supplied and there is nothing like that in it. Is there somewhere I could get the information? Sorry again for all the questions!
  2. Hi all, I am considering purchasing an older Anyang 165 two-piece hammer. At present the age of the machine is not known, but it is at least 20+ years old. I have read about some of the older machines having a problem where they get very hot. I don't know if this is a problem which can be fixed or not. But I am also wondering if there are other problems or if people have thoughts on these older machines. Are they comparable to the current crop in terms of reliability and quality? I am also considering purchasing a new 88, but this other machine just came up. Is the control on these older 165s less then on the current 88s? I would love to hear any experiences or thoughts. Thanks for your thoughts, Don
  3. A while ago I purchased a 25kg Anyang. I only have single phase so I took the advice of a friend (because of my lack of knowledge in this area) and have now ordered an MT3 Transwave Converter Multi-Motor 3.0kw. I then got in touch with John (the very helpful uk distributor of Anyangs) and he suggested I run it off a Variable Frequency Drive. I had no idea that there was an alternative to the converter for running the hammer from single phase. The Transwave converter is costing me almost £700 so £300 would be a significant saving. It seems a bit to good to be true, why would anyone buy a converter? Are there any disadvantages with the VFD? What is everyone else using? Thanks Andy
  4. Good Morning I think that in general we don't recognize good customer service enough and we take it for granted. A few short weeks ago I purchased a Striker stc 88 power hammer, I knew close to nothing about this machine so I started calling around to people that dealt with similar machines, Mr. Johnson with Anyang USA was one of this calls. Mind you that he knows that I’ve already purchased a competitor’s product and instead of dismissing me, which I would find acceptable, he went to the trouble of providing me with pictures of bases and specs of alterations that he does to his products, with no gain or profit in mind. How do you recognize this kind of generosity? Please share any and all instances of great customer service that you have received; I hope that my experience has some parallels. And a huge "thank you" to James Johnson for his time and patience. Sergio Black Mutt Forge Altamonte Springs, Florida
  5. After some long talks with my parents and LOTS of reading, I have decided to sit down and plan for my shop and what I need/want to buy, when i want to buy it, and how nuch i should expect to pay. I have been recearching pros and cons of differant types of power hammers, and I have think settled on an air hammer. I would like to get an anyang 33, because the power requirements are easy, it is versitile, controllable, and not too big, because i currently am in a space saving mode. i would like to hear arguments of air vs mechanical hammers to make sure i have chosen the righ hammer. so far, the plan is: #1. clean up the shop and get rid of things that i dont need #2. make tools (fullers swages cutoffs that kind of thing) #3. Save money to put walls up (frame walls and put tin on) #4. save money to insulate and put plywood (or somthing else) on the inside #5. pour concrete floor #5. power hammer #6. more tooling what do you think? of my plan? the hammers? what should i expect to pay for an anyang? i will most likley be looking for used as my first
