Day before we take apart the 250lb #littlegiant #powerhammer I wanted to do a test. So I cut three pieces of 3×1.25 a36 mild steel. Gave it 10 solid hits. We are getting an air hammer that is 220lbs and am curious to compare the two when it's installed. I had one of the three move more and am calling it on me operating the hammer. But that's why I did more than one piece. Average was forging from 3" to 1.125" in those ten hits. These were around 1800f. Though I wouldn't use the iPhone color calibration to determine what heat as these phones take a picture that is on the more saturation side compared to what we see with our eyes. #blacksmith #blacksmithing #dirtysmith #hammertest #byeBOB
