I Forge Iron

Power hammer height

Recommended Posts

Wondering where people like the anvil height on their power hammers, presses. Had a buddy over for a forge session, and noticed how much he stooped over. This is at 30", thinking e little higher.

He wants one now, haha. He is on grid, and would be wanting an electric motor run hyd. unit, caused he really liked the control of mine. I don't have a clue of the specs on mine, its a cessna pump on a 12hp diesel outside. Would ya get similar speed, and power out of a two stage pump on 240v? Idk.
I'd build it more like a forging press than a shop press, we talked about putting a shear in the action would be nice too. Ideas?
