The Planishing Hammer has been long used in metal fabrication and restoration to smooth large areas of metal after it has been roughly shaped with a hammer and sand bag. Common uses are for custom motorcycle gas tank and fender manufacturing, street rod bodies, patch panels for auto restoration, repair and metal sculpting. The power head is a heavy-duty aircraft rivet gun, sturdy steel fabricated frame with 500mm throat depth, is beefy enough to smooth 1.2mm mild steel. A quick release allows the lower shaft to slide down, to accept panels with deep flanges. The power head adjustment controls the intensity from 875-1350 blows per minute. A foot control starts and stops the hammering while being hooked up to compressed air. Includes Ø32mm flat top die, 25, 50 and 76mm radius anvils. The machine weighs 25kg and has bolt holes to be easily secured to floor.
