I Forge Iron

David Robertson air hammer

Recommended Posts

I wanted to buy one from him directly or build it but ended up buying it from a landlord in an unusual circumstance. ended up getting it cheaper than i could have built it, repaired the gibs and the dies which were badly worn and she runs like a charm.

i love that hammer, its not a Nazel by any means but an extremely well built home hammer. it is very simple and requires only oil in the air system and the dies tightened now and then. David used a hydraulic cylinder on the one that i have which works great and i like for the fact that the shaft is a little heavier than what an air cylinder's would be for the same size.

Just ordered my set of plans from David a few days ago. I will purchase the materials as I get the money and let you folks know how it goes. It may be sometime, but when I finally get there I will do a test. It looks like a very good tool for most all of the work I do.
