i have been offered a steam hammer, the bloke told me 'if yer can get er goin ye can 'ave er" ... apparently he tried it with his small compressor, and gave up after a couple of blows. http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/72157628439741909/ id love any info anyone might have on hammers like it , and running a steamy on air, or steam, and the best way to go about it.... i'd say the outside of the cylinder was about 1' and the length was about 3' the hammerblock about 7" square.(the block is solid to the tup, no dovetail for interchangeable blocks, but the bottom die can be changed.) he reckons when he took it apart it was surprisingly clean inside, and i think it was used, at the mulgrave sugar mill, up to about 20 years ago, when it was replaced by a massey 5cwt. the mill was established in 1896 and i am inclined to think this was a brand new aquisition at that time. 117 years ago. thanks mates, any help would be appreciated. woody.
