Ray Clontz Tire Hammer Plans by Clay Spencer
These plans are for a 50 lb. power hammer that uses the rear axle and hub from a front drive car and emergency spare tire and weighs about 700 lbs.
It is powered by a 1 hp, 1750 rpm electric motor, 120 or 240 volts, runs about 250 blows per minute and uses a spring toggle mechanism similar to Little Giant hammers.
The anvil is 6" solid round (minimum size) by 36" high and the frame is 5" square tubing.
The plans are 40 pages, printed front and back on 20 sheets that include parts list, detail and assembly drawings, sources, notes, installation, adjustments and maintenance.
Over 200 hammers have been built using these plans.
Price is $30US including postage to US and Canada, $32US to other countries.
Send check or money order to Clay Spencer, 73 Penniston Private Drive, Somerville, AL 35670. Tel: (256) 498-1498 or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for info.
Also, Clay leads workshops for chapters or groups to build 15 to 20 hammers and has Tire Hammers for sale.
Does anyone have experience with these hammers & specifically these plans?
Recommendations good or bad?
