That looks good. I Need to figure out how I can make a foot operated control for my planishing hammer.

It's not air that controls this one. This is a vintage Michigan Pneumatic tool and it's got a handle that pushes down the dies before the air makes it work.

Something like what you did for the shrinker stretcher would work I figure.





This is where I have to face the fact that I need to make it kinda permanent. I was frying to figure out how I could do it so this unit would bolt to the wall and have a cable operated pedal. This way I could quickly pull it down and put it back on the shelf. Space is one of my problems. If my shop (garage) was big enough I could make something like the one above. I do know that I never thought I would use the tool without the stand but I am learning it's also used by hand so it can't be permanently mounted anyway.

go to HF w coupon and drop $90 on the table and be done with it. It's not the best plannishing hammer but we are not Ron Fournier, we are hobbyists. My concern is, WILL IT GET THE JOB DONE GOOD ENOUGH? Sure does. When I start making panels for air planes(yeah right!) then I'll start worrying about that other stuff.

Absolutely tech, You have to start somewhere and cheap tools like HF will get you started on that road.as you move forward you can see the weaknesses and address them it gives you a better understanding of the machine and how it works later on you'll be making your own E wheel and bead rollers etc. but You cant build a good one without knowing how to use them first..
