Tire hammer dies.

Recommended Posts

HI ,

got a question for the experts in this field,i have just built a tire hammer and about to fit the anvil dies.

the question is what sort of clearance do i need between the dies . i supose it depends on the material i am going to hammer ????? .

any help will be appreciated.

Thanks for the replies. i will go for the 2 inch and make up some packers.the adjustable throw seems a good idea. I have a 5 inch throw which seems to hit pretty hard.i think if i built one again i would buy the Spencer plans . I managed to get a lot of things wrong . however it works . only have the anvil fitted today .

thanks again. for the replys.DANIEL TASMANIA AUSTRALIA.

will post a pic when i get it finished.
