Great demo!
This was a great day and my 3 newcomers are already making plans to come to the hammer in.
Thanks again for hosting this.

During the demo I asked Doug if he had tried an Appalachian style power hammer which got some laughs.

I understand the humor but it's a DIY helve style power hammer design

See you all in October. -Solvarr
