This is Jennifer’s recently acquired Anyang power hammer. It’s now re-assembled, connected to power and operational. The Anyang hammer will open up many new capabilities for Jennifer and her Daisy Hill Forge operations. This hammer will make it possible to hammer out much thicker steel, much quicker than anything that could be accomplished by hand.
Anyang is the world’s largest manufacturer of this type of machinery. Anyang employs 6000 workers world wide. This particular hammer has a 55 pound head weight and is powered by air from a built-in compressor. The compressor gives the head incredible striking power and amazing striking control.
The shop floor was already cracked and it was decided to get the hammer up and running for now and plan on creating a new foundation at a later time.
