The chambersberg seem a little pricy for a steam hammer, looks nice all painted up but it is only techincally half a hammer, it lacks the motive force to make it go ie a real big air comp or a boiler. The double arch seems a better buy if you were in the market for a big hammer.

In the last 20 years I've never seen a hammer like the C-burg sell for much more than 3% ($1,500.00) of what they're asking. Nice hammer, safety head, "High-arch model" looks like 20:1 anvil, don,t see the sow block or bottom die. With that paint job it's gonna look cool in the scrap pile.

Frosty: No, that's just the anvil. The "sow block" or anvil cap adds another foot or so to the height of the anvil. I't's also somewhat "sacrificial". Some small hammers have them and some don't.


Just what I was wondering Grant.

Thanks.

If I were starting out again I think that I would just do like Sam and buy a hammer in a box. I had a couple of offers on my 25# LG and all they did was complain that it was an old machine. I told them to go by new little China hammer and be happy. They are impressive and all self-contained and take up little space. The LG I'm going to put in the front yard as a sculpture and let her rust. You know like folks do with old farm machinery. ;)

Yeah RIGHT it's going to rust.

It's less likely to rust outdoors in Arizona than in the shop!

Don't worry, someone will come along and buy it. Anyone who complains a LG is old doesn't know what they're doing anywho! ;)
