Pedal-Schmiedehammer selber bauen | DIY treadle hammer

October 9, 2019

Some time ago I already showed you how I forged my own knive. Ever since I was fascinated by forging, now I want to raise my skills to a more professional level. For that purpose I built myself a treadle operated hammer for forging. I am going to show you how I built it. I used old truss wood for the construction. I squared, cut and tounged it. However, this can also be done simply with a hand saw and a chisel. Then I already cut the iron round bar to build the anvil and the hammer from. Welding the ball bearings isn´t the best idea, however it worked for the hammer. To make sure that all, the holes are vertical, I used the box column drill. Then I already welded the anvil and used a small piece of leather to dampen when mounting. Also I welded the hammer to a sqare pipe. Here you see a little bit how I push the material with the electrode from both sides in the direction of the slot. Ideal you can raise the slag very easy. Here, I welded the axle to the mount. Also for the axle of the pedal, I used a bearing. And welded the pedal together. For the bearing of the connection rod I used a M16 Nut on a threaded rod. This is going to be the upper mount of the connection rod. This is going to be the the connection rod. Then I connected the rod to the nut. The hammer is simply raised by a spring. The wodden strips are just for added stability and to make it easierto carry it around. Then I already painted it and used a mixture of bees wax, oil and tree resin to seal the wood. Also I scorched the wood to make the surface look better and also to soak in the mixture. I already tested the hammer a little bit Al materials I used, I had already laying around at home. In the next video you are gonna see how I built my propane forge. On the second channel, I will also upload a video soon, about making a hidden concrete foundation for the hammer.

    Der Hammer schaut richtig professionell aus. Ich bin leider wahnsinnig unbegabt was holzarbeiten angeht, deshalb beeindruckts mich total wie du das so einfach zusammenbaust. Falls ich auch mal was schmieden sollte wird das bei mir eher powered by Fitinn und leider keine so coole Maschine.

    Hast du dir das schweißen selbst beigebracht ? Sieht teilweiße besser aus als bei mir 😉 und ich hatte es in meiner Ausbildung

    Ich würde zum Schluss den Rost Entfernen. Hammer Kopf und Amboss sollten Blank sein.

  • Reply Marco May 7, 2019 at 7:46 pm

    Respekt, echt cooles Ding!

    Für mich leider momentan zu aufwendig um es nachzubauen..
    Mir fehlt auch teils entsprechendes Werkzeug bzw Material :/

    Weißt du, wie viel Kraft auf das Werkstück wirkt, wenn der Hammer auftrifft?

    Its making is superb! But really, does it perform better than your hand and a hammer?

    I like that besides the main shaft and bearings, everything looked like salvaged materials. GREAT JOB

    Guten Tag! Ein guter Hammer stellte sich heraus. Aber die Idee ist, die Lager an den Hebel zu schweißen … ((((. Kreativer Erfolg für Sie)))

    My favorite part was when he did everything he could to get weld spatter and metal shavings in his bearings.
