Restoring my 1947 Little Giant


Recommended Posts

Got a new power hammer.  Talked with Dave, over at littlegianthammer, and he said it was originally sold in 1947.  Needs a decent amount more work, but it's getting there.  Melted out the old babbit bearings, and poured new.  Now it's time to start painting and reassembling.

Making progress!

Still need to fit up the clutch, ram guide, brake and get the dies set, but an evening of fine tuning, and I think we will be back in business!
