treadle hammer

Recommended Posts

I can't find any info on your plans any place on the site. I have nothing against buying another set of plans, even better if it helps support this great site, but I would like to know at least what kind of hammer it is. Would anyone have an image of one built from these plans that is already in the gallery?

I built the inline treadle hammer from plans by Clay Spencer. I have a picture of it here. At the time, I didn't have room for the treadle hammer and rolling mill, so I no longer have the treadle hammer. The main modification that I made, was instead of welding the tube for the pivot of the treadle to the front of the upright column, I drilled holes through the column instead. Obviously I had to make the treadle a bit longer, but not bit problem there.

I used 6" diameter round for the anvil, and a lead filled tube for the hammer.
