This25 lb. LITTLE GIANT Power or Trip Hammer that is in EXCELLENT Ready to Work Condition. This Power Hammer was made by Little Giant Manufacturing Company of Mankato, Minn. It weighs approx.900 lbs. (without the motor)and can forge round stock up to2 inches in diameter. This hammer has impressive hitting power. This hammer hasnormal wear. One of the arms in the center, was welded, you cansee in the pictures. It has been this way since i boughtthe hammer and has never been a issue. I bought this Hammer from Ron Duncan, a Master Bladesmith with the ABS 7yrs ago. I have used it in my shop for the past 7yrs and given it plenty of TLC, forging stock down for knives. It has a Baldor motor and runs smoothly. A set of brand new dies that go with this (328.00) , that i bought from Sid Sudimeyer, the Little Giant go to man.
Power hammers have been used to help forge metal ever since the smith decided that he needed more capacity to forge a larger mass than he was capable of doing with his own hand. This need generated the idea of using an assistant as a striker, multiple strikers, and then the power hammer.
Today power hammers are still one of the most efficient ways to increase production and profits. Bladesmiths find power hammers a must for making knives in a time saving mannor. This hammer should last the new owner a lifetime if properly maintained.
Don't miss this chance to own a power hammer that has set the industry standard for over a century.
