Interesting design, isn't it? Seems to be only one speed but I imagine a VFD would fix that. I wonder if there is any control over how hard the hammer strikes? Also, given the price, it might be just as easy and maybe even cheaper to get a Little Giant....

that haqmmer is a planishing?forming hammer for sheet metal, it wouldn't be much use to one of us with out at least 10 times the anvil mass and a far longer stroke along with running at much slower speed. I think you would all most have to start all overwith the design to make it use full for forgeing .

Thanks MP for that information. Shows what I know about power hammers. Like Ray said, get a Little Giant. Wish I could afford one and the space for it. For now it's my old worn out arm.

It may have it's uses but Little Giant would be my choice.
