New acquisition/refurb project, a 300 lb. Beaudry power hammer.

I am indeed.  I have actually wired it all up with a motor starter and all, finish fit the bottom die and made and fit a sow key today, and I've actually fired it up and cycled the ram a few times.  Stopped short of clapping the dies more than a couple times until I get the last floor bolts for the frame drilled and epoxied in (the last step other than incidentals.) It's amazing seeing that monster old ram rise and fall again...

Holy Beaudry, Batman!

Impressive machine, and great job getting it cleaned up and running so well.

Thanks for sharing the journey.  That hammer is stunning.  I haven’t seen you on YouTube in a while.  Did you start a new channel?

That’s what my friend Peter calls “a high-class problem”!
