Default Pneumatic planishing hammer

I am thinking of adding one of the above to my collection of toys. Here is
the HF link.
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/cta...emnumber=94847

Does this tool do anything more than a $10 air hammer mounted on a frame
with a foot control? I do understand that I would have to buy some anvils,
and, by the time I am done with the fabricating won't save any money.
However, just wondering.

Thanks,

Ivan Vegvary

Don't forget to price in ear defenders, unlike the chap demonstrating
the harbour freight one !

Rather doubtful, Ivan.

I noticed that and the fact that the short-pistoned hammer has a 2+
inch gap while doing his planishing work. That was absolutely a staged
photo-op and there's no way that guy would need ear protection in that
config.

Well, it IS a $10 air hammer mounted in a frame with a foot control.

It sort of depends on what you want to do with it. Works fine for my
purposes.

THe height adjustment for the anvil tends to jump, but is not a real
problem. The sucker is noisy, as some one else point out it would be,
but that will be true of ANY such tool. To me it was worth the money I
spent.

Hi jk,
Does the foot control let you control the "bumps per minute", or, is it just
on-and-off? Curious.

Thanks for your reply.

It is basically on/off for the foot valve. There is a needle valve to
control the wacks per second.
