A new friend is in the workshop.
A bit of rust from many years outside, but I say he looks good for being 108+ years old.
I got this power hammer at the workshop on Friday from a blacksmith higher up in the mountains. Now the hammer is at my shop, I’ll be taking a coffee break every morning or so to get him restored and back in action. Will be removing all the rust, setting a new motor – can’t wait to see what he can do.
Attached to this is an old diagram of the hammer. Once I get a few more moments, I’ll post some pictures of this guy through the restoration process.
Work is moving quick these days, and lots of shipments every week (usually towards the end of the week).
Hope everyone is well, and happy Monday.
P.S. His name is “Barlow”. All my machines are named after razor makers (Wade is my anvil, Wostenholm is my grinder).
