Video of a stump replacement for a trip hammer

Recommended Posts

I actually watched all 48 minutes of this the other night even though I don't speak a lick of German.  I was astonished to see how big the "Stump" under the anvil really was.

Lets hope that repair lasts a little longer than a week. 

 

Seriously cool.

I doubt you'd do this more that once a generation.  How do you suppose they remember the process?

The old guy calling the shots was probably one of the diggers the last time :)

It does show the lengths by which people went to make something last a generation or two. This little video has led to a string of others that show a branch of industry that still relied on water for moving their big machines. I find it pretty incredible.

Yeah, I've enjoyed the videos that this one caused to show up in my feed.  Building the new water wheel was pretty cool.
