beaudry adjustments


Recommended Posts

Im trying to get some Information on adjusting the hammer part on a 250 hammer. Im guessing that the center of the hammer is the hole in it and that the spring rollers should be centered in that to the get die separation measurements. Im planing on using 1 1/4 as the distance for them . Once set is it safe to relax the springs tension to let the distance shrink or better to adjust the arm.

I have the dies about 7/8'' to 1'' apart at the very bottom of the stroke with the hammer at rest. This is for a #7 [200# ]   Beaudry Champion hammer.

 This gives a very powerful blow on the flat and still enough clearance for swage and top tool work on material up to about 2''without adjustment.
