strange "new" Little Giant

Recommended Posts

What is up with this thing? says "New" little Giant.. It looks like the dies are inline with the guides, which resemble new style little giant but the ram itself is like an old style (but not quite) its got no sow block.. its got a boss through the frame, although very small.... I think I can make out Mayers Bros on the frame... But it Clearly says Little Giant on the flywheel.... All the Mayers Bros hammers I have had or seen where plainly Little Giant's, so I always assumed that it wasnt until the full shift to Murry, Murco or Moloch that they where not "just" a Little Giant...

Yeah, the Mayer brothers moved around a lot and there are a lot of iterations of the "Little Giant". Seen a couple like this. One had a deep hollow behind the ram and the guides were adjusted with bolts that sprung the frame together. Seemed to be an improvement over the wrap-around guide.
