It is hard to keep enough wood blocks in the shop. Hard or soft wood blocks are used to hold power hammer and press rams up safely. They are used under work being drilled to prevent damage to the machine table or vise. They are used as a pad to soften hammer blows when "adjusting" machinery. Wood blocks are used to space up jacks as needed and as fulcrums under pry bars. In a pinch a wooden V-block can be used to cross drill a shaft as well as a metal one. In the blacksmith shop wood blocks are used as repousse' forms, dishing blocks and spoon forms, the shapes often burned in as the work is done.

   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.
