DIRECTIONS FOR ERECTING AND ADJUSTING THE
BEAUDRY CHAMPION POWER HAMMER
The foundation should be built as per blue print furnished.
Anvils are separate castings and must be securely bolted to found- ation by two long headed bolts shown in blue print.
The speed of hammer pulley should be  r. p. m.
The distance between hammer shaft and driving shaft should not exceed eight feet.
The driving shaft should be directly above the hammer shaft and the driving pulley should be as large, or larger than the hammer pulley.
The idler or binder pulley on hammer should bear against the descending side of the belt.
NO CHANGE SHOULD BE MADE IN THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE HAMMER UNTIL THE OPERATOR HAS BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE MACHINE.
When hammer is at bottom of stroke the distance distance between dies should be
[ 3/4 ]
inches for work up to
[ 1 3/4 ] inches.
For larger work the ram should be raised.
The ram is raised or lowered on the connecting rod by loosening the set screw and key in spring box, moving it up or down on the connecting rod as desired.
To alter the length of stroke loosen nut on crank pin and change its position as required
by means of adjusting screw in disc.
When it is found that the hammer does not strike a firm and positive blow,
the spring arms, which operate within the ram must be tensioned. This
is done by giving a quarter turn or more, as may be necessary, to each of the tension nuts in the spring box.
EVERY HAMMER IS TESTED AND ADJUSTED BEFORE LEAVING THE FACTORY AND WHEN RECEIVED IS READY FOR IMMEDIATE USE.
To apply more tension, screw in tension nuts in spring box, for less tension screw out.
The amount of tension on arms should be always the same whether light or heavy forging is being done.
It should never be less than when received from us.
When adjusting the tension be sure and note that the rollers within the ram move freely.
This can be done by having the hammer at the bottom of its stroke, and placing a lever between the dies, and raising the ram.
Keep all parts well lubricated, especially the inside of ram and crank shaft.
Never use a sledge to drive keys.
