Hello I am presently building a Model Steam Hammer I purchased the castings from Brunell Models. So just a heads up the castings are pretty nice but the drawings are horrible. 80% of the dimensions missing and the ones that are there are wrong, so be ware.
I checked out that hammer also but liked the "A" shaped frame of the Reeves better, however still have bought no hammer (have plenty to do without it) You might try to find the build article from 1899 for better info~
I've begun building up the base & a little done on the main frames. Also been picking up the Engineering in Miniature for the build articles. I had 4 of the magazines coming from "down under" in the mail, when the tracking said they passed thru LA and a month later they still had not reached Maine I figured they were lost. So I found the same in England and ordered, next day the first showed up. You never know what will happen~
What are the issue numbers? I didn't know that it had been serialized, I have the Tinker steam pump castings, just waiting for the side frames to come from the laser cutting man. I found all the magazines for the steam pump. Made the job a lot easier to understand.
It starts in August of '97 and goes to October '98 Reeves said it starts in July, not true (I bought July) I have yet to get the last couple so not sure if that's right. I got started on this but found my lathe to have finally drove me over the edge, and decided to replace it. The new one is just about ready to go to work, an Acra 14 40 with variable speed drive~
Thanks for that, I will have a look and see if I can get the issues as well.
My lathe is third hand that I know. There is no makers name on it, but I have found that Boxford parts fit it. But it is not a Boxford lathe.
So I have finished my Burnell Steam Trip Hammer see attached photo's. The Hammer works great and you definitely don't want to get your finger under it. It is a wicked tool now I just need to find a use for it, maybe cut the pressure down and use it for cracking walnuts.
