hf planishing hammer set up

i bought a hf planishing hammer. just wondering if there are any tricks to setting it up. It doesnt seem to have any movement up and down with the hammer. i have never used one so i have no idea what its supposed to be like. it makes lots of noise but doesnt seem to do much other than that. any tips and help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks in advance

We have a roll around gantry hoist in the shop/ My son hung a 2 X 6 with the HF planishing hammer on one end and some of his weigh lifting iron on the other end to balance it then worked out the quarters in his 22 dodge lakester. easier than trying to have 4 guys balande a bucket body. after you use HF stuff for a while you have to start fixing things. I think he changed the lock pins.
The planishing hammer at UVU panel fab shop (HOT ROD PROGRAM) has an adjustable pressure you operaate with your foot, a lot of custom dies have a bar welded pointing down that keep the lower from rotating.
