Power Hammer Use-‘Pre-pre-conference class’

Class size: Maximum students:    10
Instructor: Nathan Robertson
Class description: Do you want to get the most out of your power hammer? Or are you contemplating getting a power hammer but want to know more about them first? In this class Nathan will be taking students from the basics of driving a power hammer, both mechanical and air powered, up to as far as we can get in two days. Students will learn a technique, make a power hammer tool with that technique, then use that tool to learn another technique, etc. Students should go home with new tools in their bucket and new skills in their head. Nathan has extensive time forging under different hammers and has learned from some of the best hammer drivers of our time so whether you are new to power hammers or have used one for years you are sure to learn something new and exciting from Nathan.
