Hand-Cranked Blower, Finally


Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a hand-cranked blower pretty much since I started smithing.  I finally picked one up. Champion 400 with no visibly obvious problems. I found it through a contact in the local state ABANA chapter.  The gentleman I got it from said it was his dads (fulltime use as a blacksmith), and that he has been storing it for 30 years.  He suggested that I dismantle, clean and relube/assemble. I paid $45.  I'm happy here too.  ( I also picked up a 5.5 inch post vise with all parts and only a little wear on the screw)

Yes, the stand will go.  I am working on a rivet-forge styled coal forge, and will integrate the blower into the design. nothing fancy, just more portable and large base-d. I am thrilled.  this was another thing I have been looking for, with a little more hunger, since I went to JC Campbell a few years ago.
