A guy I met has an uncle with a 50lb little giant hammer in good working condition he is wanting to sell. Said he'd take $3000 and no less. I do not have any specifics on the hammer. Comes with a 3 phase converter. I am going to look At it this week. My question is..... For $3000 is this hammer worth purchasing. I know I have the tools and fabrication ability to make my own mechanical hammer as I do not have a sufficient compressor for running an air hammer. Should I just build my own hammer? As far as time is concerned I do not need this hammer right now however as soon as I get it I know it will speed up my work efforts. So I'd say If it took me a couple months, hours here and there making it that wouldn't be a concern for me. So I guess it's a question of the value of it. In my mind if I'm going to spend a couple grand building a hammer I want to know its going to last long term and stand up to near daily use. From the hammers I have been looking at I really like the 'super rusty' Appalachian style hammer. However I have read lots of reviews on hammer builds and can't decide on what I want. Has anyone built their own hammers or personally use a homemade hammer??
