"SCRAPPY", the Appalachian Power Hammer in Australia

 

Hi. My name is Terence Raw.

I'm a 61 year-old, invalid pensioner from Brisbane, Australia.  After seeing your Rusty pictures and printing some out to work from, I thought I would have a go.  So I made this power hammer from scrap steel and car parts.  And the motor and pulley from a cement mixer. 

The hammer is two steel spring hangers blocks from a truck.  They weigh in at 40lbs.

The whole lot cost me $70 AUS.  Most of that was for welding rods and two chunks of spring steel as I had the cement mixer for 15 years.

The harder you press the foot pedal, the harder it hits.  It took me approximately 1 week to build the power hammer.  I call it "SCRAPPY".

Thanks for the idea.
