  4. Ya'll might check out these hammers..... http://chinapowerhammer.com/
  5. Thanks Mike, the one I found doesn't have a motor, it was robbed off several years ago to be used on an air compressor. He said it was a 6 hp motor but didn't say what the RMP was. Does the hammer need a 6 HP motor and I guess it should be 1750?
  6. I have located a Mayer Bros #25 power hammer. From what I have found from internet research is the Mayers Bros were pre Little Giants. I was hoping that someone that had some experience with this hammer could give me some advise on availability of parts or if it is even worth messing with. The dies look extremely rounded as if they were used for something with lots of radius. Any information would be appreicated. Don
  7. Thanks for all the info....I got some Potassium Permanganate. I was a little freaked out when I mix it up.... I was a dark pruple in color. However, when I applied it to a piece of horn that had been sanded down to white it turned the white area a light orangish color. I will also play around with the dyes but for now I think I will use the Potassium Permanganage for the piece I am working on now....Thanks again for the tips....Don
  8. I really enjoyed reading the makers profile on Don in the ABS journal's latest issue. Lot's of knife making history..
  9. I have seen some stag handles where the white material where the bark had to be sanded off different colors. One that I would like to try was an orangish color. I was hoping some one could give me suggestions on how to stain the stag different colors. Thanks, Don
