Hammer rack

With the new hammer roughly in its final position Nick wanted to get rid of the old hammer rack so he and Jason made this one which is bolted to the wall. As you can see there is a bit more space. There are about 50 hammers now so this is a good thing.

The first thing that they have to do is make a big enough hole for the foundations for the hammer (this is so that it doesn't break our windows).

Old Workshop Photos

Below is Nick hard at work in left hand corner of his workshop. On the left is the old power hammer and on the right is the gas forge. He built both of these himself. Right behind him is the old tong rack. In the opposite corner stands the grinder.
