To make my wooden clock tower I needed to make some framing pins to hold it together before the final fitting of wooden pegs.
I need to make about 20 of them and after years of using hammers[usually a 7 pound hammer with a short handle as a club hammer] my wrists and elbows are starting to get worn out. So I decided to build a power hammer .
Searching tinternet cme up with this site https://www.kensiron.com/kz100
Brought some steel and started making this
Steel plate are 6 feet by 30 inches and 12mm thick, anvil is 12 inch by 1 inch plates by 24 inches long and will be bolted into a frame with the idea that they can be removed to make it lighter to move .
Base plate is a piece of 30mm thick plate
The hammer will be a 1metre length of 65 by 50 bms sliding in oil impregnated nylon and operated by a 60mm bore hydraulic ram running on compressed air
