NEVER, Run a power hammer of any type without both of the dies, sow block and anvil installed. It only takes one stroke going too far to wreck a power hammer. 1/2" (1 cm) too far is all it takes. Replacement dies must also not be too short. Hammers with separate anvils have a critical height which they must not be set lower than OR be allowed to settle beyond. If you do not know, ask or make some measurements and figure it out . - guru

   FOR SALE  Scranton and co mechanical powerhammer:
6000 OBO  
I'm currently taking offers on my power hammer. I'm looking into making a small upgrade in my shop and need the room and funds. This is a great running machine that will out work any other mechanical hammer it's size.

This is a Scranton and co (formerly beldon) 25lb ram weight mechanical leaf spring hammer.

I've done quite a bit of work and have had a lot of work done to this machine. From machining to fabricating all to make this hammer run like a top! Don't let the paint job fool you, she is a beast through and through!

Here's a list of all that's been done,
- new treadle
- all new shims around the anvil
- remachined dovetails in the ram and sow
block for the dies
- 2 sets of new dies, drawing and flat
- re-shimed and tightened the guides
- new connection bearing
- new clutch pin
- new belting all the way around
- comes with extra belting and lacing tool
- newer 2hp high tourqe motor
- a frame crack professional repaired

A note to the frame crack; I am a professional welder yet have never welded cast iron before, so I bit the bullet and called in someone who does it on an almost daily basis to make the repair. I supervised the whole process and he did a great job and we discovered the crack originated from sand trapped in the casting.

She is live, running, and ready for a test run.
