Power hammer problem - Hammer keeps falling...
Alveprins posted a topic in Tools and Tool MakingAlright - so I was drawing out this multibar damascus billet today, I turn from the gas forge to the hammer - and what do ya know - the hammer is already out - even though I haven't even touched the damn thing... Next thing - the hammer slowly keep sliding further and further down until it eventually hits the anvil surface. I turn it off and open the cover over the rear piston - and test it by putting in some oil directly - and starting it again. It performs better - but still can't pull the hammer all the way up into it's chamber - and still slowly keeps falling down closer and closer towards the anvil. Is this a gasket problem - or has the piston become so worn - it is no longer able to keep sufficielt vacuum / pressure or whatnot to keep the hammer all they way up? I did a quick check of the lever that lets in air and stuff in order to make the hammer go - but nothing seemed loose or anything... everything solid and tight as usual. I've attached links to a couple of short clips of the hammer in action onto YouTube so that the problem can be seen visually: From distance: Closeup: Any help and input is greatly appreciated! I have this guy waiting patiently for his knife - and I need to resolve this problem ASAP. Sincerely, Alveprins.
Power Hammer shaking the entire house
Tomas Benadik posted a topic in Beginners PlaceGreetings, gentlemen. One important question for you, please: My bladesmithing master installed power hammer in his shop - the type embedded in the floor in a deep pit, with proper cushioning (as per instructions). However, when it's put to work, the entire house is shaking - and since it's fairly old house, the end result is that he is unable to use the power hammer at all. It was quite costly, so we're trying to figure out what else can we do to be able to use it. Recently, my master came across notion of some kind of "pneumatic absorption pillows", that could possibly solve this problem. Do any of you, please, have some idea about what might help or where I might get pair of these "pillows"? The desired size is 28x28 cm (that would be about 11x11 inch). Any info and help is much appreciated! Many thanks, Tomas
