The Gordon Barr Treadle Hammer

Unread post by Darryl Ponder » Sun Feb 10, 2013 2:47 pm

Here's a photo of Rev.1 of the Gordon Barr designed treadle hammer. Kits with all the steel can be had from Discount Steel in Minneapolis.

This kit is a really good deal if you are looking to build your own treadle hammer.

Regards,

Darryl

Hello. Pat and I are currently working on two of these treadle hammers. We are about 90% done and so far everything is looking good. We have enjoyed the process and I can't wait until I can get some hammer time in. If you want a photo I could dig some up.
Regards.
Wayne
