Little Giant power hammers for sale in 1925. The motor cost more than the hammer! I’ll take a 500lb. please…

The shop I work in has the 100lb version of this from a little earlier in the century. It’s a beautiful machine, and always a trip to work on.

“If you work with your hands, you’re a laborer.
If you work with your hands and your mind, you’re a craftsman.
If you work with your hands and your mind and your heart, you’re an artist.”

One of my favorite sculptures from the Helfstyn Castle conference. Artist unknown. The Czech Republic has a very active artistic forging community. 

Forged art. In a good way :)
