John, what is that white vertical tube on the back of this machine? Water trap?

If Iím remembering correctly CP called it an air reservoir tank on their original blueprints. Personally itís a stupid idea that I donít recommend anyone copying, I canít see any performance difference between the 36Ē hammer in the photo and my 24Ē hammer that doesnít have one so it was a waste of my time fabricating it. Live & learn --- hopefully. ~ John Buchtenkirch

Default Working height

I have a 12" CP that's on a home made stand. Working height is way too low. I usually like my machines about elbow height, and am planning on building a new base for it to get it up to that height. Any other suggestions?

Brad, those photos are probably well over 15 years old. When Grumman was auctioned off I bought every planishing hammer they sold. All of those hammers are long gone (sold) except for the ones I still use in my own business. Sorry ~ John Buchtenkirch

Also, what is the ideal distance between the upper hammer and lower die? Is there a place which I can download an operators manual for this thing?

I don't want to go 'hog wild' and end up with a broken tool!

Thanks!
Old thread back from the dead . Just bought a 12Ē CP and looking for assembly manuals etc online but no luck, and will also need some info on set up..
