Tire hammer


Recommended Posts

I received an email from him just last week. He was in the process of moving his shop to a new place, so has been a bit busy. He was responding to an email I sent him in October. Apparently his spam filters have been a little too pro-active.

Due to other commitments, John Wayne will not be able to host workshop until maybe October/November. Clay is hoping to have workshop at his new shop late summer. If interested, please contact Clay.....

There is a possible Tire Hammer workshop being planned for June 26-28 at John Wayne Taylor's shop in Wetumpka, AL. Currently, the estimated cost is around $1000. They are looking for at least 7 more people to sign up for the workshop. If you are interested, please contact Clay Spencer at clay@tirehammer.com

Spread the word....

I was part of a group that built 12 last year, in Western NY. Clay was like the energizer bunny, answering questions, wrenching, jigging, you name it. I recommend taking the course and enjoying the friendships. I love my hammer, turns out it was the 300th hammer he built. His experience and attitude made the days of work seem like play. He is a wealth of information, take advantage of it.

Andrei,
What kind of bolt? I used a allen socket head (grade8(?)) Mine haven't come loose. Die mounting plate is mild steel. Not sure if thats an issue. Also, slight misalignment could cause the bolts to work loose. Just a coulple thoughts :)

I have had no problems at all with mine, but I followed Clay's advice, make sure to check everything every time before operation, and don't treat it like a #250 lb hammer, gentle and slow, it gets the job done. We had a blast building them, and I'm having a blast learning how to use it.
