  1. Hello, all. I'm looking for a 100-150# mechanical hammer within the North American continent. Seriously. If it's worth it, I don't care to come and get it. I've always wanted to travel. Up front, know that I'm not looking for anything mint, an 8 out of 10, or even a 6. I'm looking for something that needs work. This is because I enjoy working on them, and I'm also cheap. That said, I'm also not looking for basket cases. If something needs rebuilt, a few parts made from scratch, is covered with various flora, rusty, etc., that's great. If you've got something with a broken/cracked f
  2. No worries, sir, and thank you for your interest! Bradley's certainly are no joke, haha.
  3. I use W-1 almost exclusively with regards to straight carbon steel, and for most everything. If you're looking at getting some, but don't have the means to get an expensive quench oil, get 5 gallons of McMaster-Carr's 11 second quench. It's not quite as good as Parks 50 or the Houghton stuff, but it more than gets the job done.
  4. Okay. Managed to finally get some pictures to load. I have more that I can send, or can take specific ones if you want. Also deleted the part about not being able to load pictures to not muddy up the post. Thanks for looking!
  5. I'm selling my Bradley. Basically, I have way too much going on and am simply not going to have the time needed to get it torn down, put back together, and then get it running. Asking $2,500, or $1,250 and a 300+ pound John Brooks or other cast steel anvil as part trade. Doesn't have to be perfect, but has no sway/sag, no major damage to the Hardie, and serviceable corners. Needs cushions, a beam, and a motor (5hp is what it called for in the day), and is in Western North Carolina. The bearing surfaces of the shaft that drives the hammer are in good shape, but I haven't gotten into
  6. SOLD! Could a moderator please remove this post? Thanks!
  7. Very true. But that's a good bit more coin than I've got, unfortunately.
  8. That's what I'm thinking. It's rough, but I like a challenge And yeah, yeah. I know. All Romulus needs is a home, motor, and a foot pedal and he'll be running. The former two, however, leave me scratching my head. Soon, though. At least I hope so!! You're coming right along yourself! And Daniel isn't too far away, but with it being a 200# hammer, about all I could learn is how it goes together.
  9. Hello, all. I'm not looking to buy. Just getting that out there, haha. I'm in the process of Hoping to buy one, so no worries there. What I am looking for, however, is someone that has a 100# or 125# Bradley compact that's pretty well complete, or knows someone with one I could get in touch with that would be willing to let me study it; or possibly get me any information at all. The one I'm maybe buying is in pretty rough shape, so it would be Awesome to have access to one so I could figure out what it needs, measurements, etc. I live in NC, so maybe someone "local" might see this? Anyway, tha
  10. Hello, all. I'm selling off a grinder. Grinder has a Lesson VFD variable speed drive wired on, and a 2hp motor. The original drive crapped out, but the new one works very well. Comes with the flat platen only, as that is the only attachment I got. Never had the work rest. Now asking $1500. Thanks very much!
  11. It's not available any more. I called a few weeks back, but never thought to mention it here. Sorry!
