My God that is beautiful. Never ceases to amaze me how truly well made and durable the machines of the past are. Truly a testament to past generations and a challenge for future ones.

SWEET. I read the text and while slowly going through the pics I was thinking, dang did he get one of the many without an anvil block? Ohhhhh BOY. Then the last pic on the trailer and there it is the anvil! 

I've gotten to play with a 3B once and loved it but a 2B would be perfect in my shop. I''m feeling severe power hammer envy.

Thanks guys. Couldn’t be happier with condition. Story is that it was sent out for a rebuild and then moth balled and stored inside when the hammer finally came back. 

Next on the agenda is a shop addition once things dry out.

Any ideas of where I can get a sight glass for this?

Gorgeous hammer.  Congratulations!

 

I have a 2B that was beautifullly rebuilt by Bob Bergman. Mine is a two piece as well, effectively  converted into a one piece by Bob by mounting anvil and hammer onto a four foot by eight foot by two inch thick steel plate.  This arrangement avoids the need to pour a special foundation for the anvil.  

 

I could never get the original Manzel oiler to work to my satisfaction, so I replaced it with a new unit which, at least so far, works great. Shoot me an e-mail if you’re interested in details.  [email protected]

 Got the Oiler going. Added compression bypass valve. Took apart both valves and freed up Linkage. Meggared the motor. Just need to build an inner cone which is missing and she’s ready to test. After that, time to start the shop addition.
