Thanks for your comments. My next video is going to be on the anatomy of a self contained hammer... where I am going to take one apart, show the moving parts, show how to rebuild it (although it will probably never need to be rebuilt unless you are using it in an industrial setting). They are simple in operation and simple to work on. The design has been proven with over 100 years of use. Glad you enjoyed.

Now that video will answer a lot of my questions about how those things really work. Do all brands of self contained hammers work basically the same? By that I mean internally, not necessarily how well they function.

I believe they are essentially the same... but I do know the valving of the hammers are different. I think the next video that I do will even show more. I am going to show how to take one apart... and how to replace any of the wearing parts... most people will never have to do that but it will show how simple they are to maintain and how the operate. They are very simple... a single high volume cylinder in the back that is an air pump. They have totally enclosed main bearings... there are a set of upper and lower valves that control the air flow to the ram. The ram basically "free floats" in the front cylinder. The ram has a set of piston rings to seal piston part of the ram. I think it will be interesting to take a hammer totally apart and show the details... after that video, I am going to concentrate on forging with the hammers. James

In 2010, I did my first video and when I posted it, I promised to post video's where I take apart the Anyang hammer.  I apologize for how long it has taken me to do this.  Time has flown by.  I have posted 3 more video's that review the basic operation of the hammer, taking apart the ram and also the valves.  Next, I will do video's showing the operation of the compressor as well as the crankcase assembly.   Please provide feedback on other video's that would interest the Metal Artist community.
