  1. i have a kuhn reiter 55 kg powerhammer, that have a few problems: when i turn it on, the ram doesn't go up for about 20 min, on a cold day it takes up to an hour. when forging the ram doesn't go all the way up, and takes a few minutes before it goes up again after i stop forging, witch means i only get full power on the first blow. but i can push the ram up with my hands. there are a few air leaks, that might be the cause of the problem, but i don't know. hopefully someone here can help me picture of my hammer:
  2. Hi. I've recently installed my Alldays & Onion 1cwt, I'm having trouble with the treadle, it's a bit stiff going down but can still forge with it, it's when it goes to return it doesn't want to without me aiding it. it has been sitting around for over a year and I've left the hammer running for over an hr to warm it up. Just wondering if it's a common thing or do I have to take it apart to fix. thanks Tom.
  3. I am just about finished with a 97 year service of a 3B I bought in the spring. I wanted to share some pics and story about this hammer . I talked with Bruce Wallace who was kind enough to share the date of completion and where the hammer was delivered to. It was completed and ready for delivery on April 30th 1920. I have been fortunate on one level that the hammer had not been hacked up or molested by incompetent mechanics. On another level it was really due to be gone through and repaired after a well used life of 97years. The hammer is a testament to when things were really built with care, precision and longevity in mind. The first two are a couple of pics when i first got the hammer. The shop space I'm in right now it wasn't an option to do a proper concrete foundation so I had to essentially make it a one piece hammer for now. After completing the base I installed it next to my Chambersburg utility hammer and wait a little while for my good friend Mark Krause to arrive so we can get to work. As you can see the hammer had big ramp dies for forging big jackhammer bits, yes it did wreck the guides . I got some cast iron stock from Mcmaster carr and Mark machined me two new ones and cleaned up the other two that weren't too badly worn.
  4. Putting my Nazel 3B Power hammer up for sale, just not getting the use that it should be sitting in It's current location. Will be sad to see it go. Good running condition asking $17k US obo located in Langley BC #nazel#powerhammer #powerhammerforsale #blacksmith #forging older pic but its just more dusty and some stuff pile around it. Same shape as shown, can be tested where it sits currently. https://vancouver.craigslist.ca/rds/tls/5897914817.html reply to the craigslist ad most likely the easiest way to get a hold of me.
  5. This is a short film I made some time ago in collaboration with a young film maker Simon Watson. We filmed it over two days, making a sculpture from start to finish. The sculpture was not pre-designed, it was an Idea I had been think about for maybe a week. A lot of the time with sculpture I like to work from my head instead of drawings, it feels more natural that way. Hope you enjoy it.
  6. Well..almost, just some teasing pictures for now. 2.5'x3.5'x3' Hmm, offset or straight.. Need a bigger hammer.. I thought if I cut some grid lines I could break it up easy. Cutting concrete is awful though. Maybe 30min with the jackhammer My blue shop vac.. There is a bit of clay in the dirt here so I used some to smash around the sides and hold in the gravel, worked well. 3ft deep! Lines..just cause
  7. Hi y'all I am going to tell a story about me and my powerhammer and it is a story that has been going for a few years but it isn't nearly started yet ;) I will try to give as much info about the very hammer as I can as i find that there is very little info about this make on the internet. also about how I set it up and why I did it the way I have done If there is any Questions feel free to ask As some of you know I purchased a Powerhammer about 2 years ago. I got a great opportunity to buy a lovely old airhammer a Pilkington 1 CWT hammer a hammer bigger then i had first planed to get. I was at that time looking to get a 25kg(55) Anyang airhammer The deal I got was from a cool company in the UK Massy forging limited (John N) the hammer got a good overhaul from some Pros and was then shipped to Denmark the hammer before it got anything done to it as it was when I visited to try it out when I was over there to try it out I also shot this video when I got the hammer home it looked like this I was still not ready for it so for about 1,5 years it's been sitting in the barn waiting... while I worked on getting the workshop ready. first thing I did my self on the hammer was cutting the wooden blocks to fit better and then make a strong steel band around them they are 6x6" pinewood or such then the base was up I made a wooden insert the same size as the foundation was going to be but 15mm bigger all around. Then cast the floor around the wooden "form" then removed the wooden "form" and dug the hole out and stomped the ground below and put it 15mm Styrofoam and as the hammer was very low I made a steel ring from 10x100mm barstock the shape I wanted the foundation then levelled that out and welded in a little bit of reinforcement (used what I could get free) then filled her up the cement is approx 750x650x1200mm then last winter(2011) I was then finally ready to move the hammer in onto its foundation, had to make a big hole in the wall directly behind where the hammer was going and then roll it in as there was no way I could lift it in place. the whole hammer weighs about 2 Tons but even so it was very easy to roll it in I used 3/4" and 5/4" water pipe to roll it on as there was a hight difference and also laid strips of 3mm steel plate to roll an to there was a even surface for the pipe we was 3 people doing it and did it slowly and controlled but it still only took about 1 hour when the hammer finally was in place I was happy like a child in a free candy store. here you see the 2mm rubber plate between the wood and cement I then drilled 4, Ø32mm holes 500mm into the cement and resin bonded in M27 8,8 whole tread bar got some stuff that was vibration resistant at least that's what the seller said :) Next is the treadle but I got to go now (making chain guard) ATM. at this point in the story we are around April 2012
