Tire hammer in action

Recommended Posts

Looks great..I have one question. I notice the top die is held on with a piece that slips over the hammer and a bolt through it. Do you have any problem with it striking the hammer guide tube on the upswing when running at full speed? I know my hammer goes up inside the guide a little at full speed. Just curious. Nice job though it looks great.

i had some reservations about the clearance you mention. To make sure the die holder cleared the slides i ran it without the die attached to make sure i had clearance when the die was attached. A bit of trial error but the whole machine was trial and error.

I just about gave up trying to stop it walking about the floor,even with the base plate .400lb and the anvil 500 lb however i did get it running real sweet in the end.

the thing hammers real good.
