I Forge Iron

Any idea what kind of hammer this is?

Recommended Posts

Its a 1500 pound Erie. The compressor required would be MASSIVE. That's after you converted it to run on air. She is currently set up to run on steam. To put it in perspective the piston rod is 4" diameter. If I was a high roller it would already be in my yard holding up my mailbox!:D If you find anyone interested and they need any info feel free to contact me, I made the big hole next to it. I pulled a 30,000 pound self contained forging hammer out of there. Pic below is the Dies, my  shoe is a size 14!
