   FOR SALE  Columbia anvil:
I don't know  
This is a feeler to see if anyone would be interested in a Columbia hardware company anvil. Although these anvils were produced from 1904 to 1925, this particular one is a world war II relic. I acquired it from shop 31 which was the propeller and forge shop. The building is now out of service, however it is one of the few remaining buildings that are original to pearl harbor naval shipyard. This anvil is from there and is full of history. Contact me for pictures, the only thing I don't know about this it is it's weight, however it is estimated at 250+lbs.

   FOR SALE  Little Giant and Champion Blower:
All 3 Power Hammers are 220V, single chasse.
Hammers are mounted on solid 2 1/2" thick hardwood pallets with two pieces of 3/4" allthred running full width.
They have new babbit bearings with extra shims for future wear, new dies in each hammer (completely reconditioned & many extra features on each hammer).

Showroom CLEAN & each hammer is ready to run!

These hammers have very positive foot control, fast or slow - no slack in pedal action. All hammer ways are true, very little slack.

There is automatic breaking on each hammer, so the hammer stops at top of stroke. In addition, I have rebuilt one 100 LB Little Giant, one 50 LB Little Giant, as well as one 25LB Little Giant for private parties, so I do have knowledge and experience in rebuilding and the servicing of these machines.

In total, I have reconditioned and repaired six hammers!
