Italian power hammer manufacturers

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

Two years ago I bought a small self-contained power hammer (40 kg ram, around 88 lbs) from the 50s. 

The model is called "Ariete" (the italian word for ram, the animal) and was manufactured by a company called "Mario Pensotti".

I was wondering if anyone here (especially, but not only, the smiths from Europe and Italy) owns an italian-made power hammer (from Pensotti itself, or other manufacturers like Apuania Corsi, Maccaferri...)

It would be nice to collect here some information, specs, blueprints and so on about that equipment and build something like an historical archive.

Thank to you all in advance!
