Mr. Spaco, on your site, you show that you have a collection of power hammers--nine of them. Smiths need those. Farriers need those. People working hard to make a living in this profession could use them to keep this craft alive. What are they keeping alive sitting there in your collection? I know you think it's neat (and hammers are really neat) but please consider selling them to people who will use them. If you bought them at auctions and saved them from scrappers, that's wonderful (and thank you) but please help our craft by putting them in the hands of blacksmiths.

Since you took the time to show us, I decided to comment. I do not mean to be rude in any way.

Respectfully,

Joel

I hear you Joel.
But there are MANY collectors of things out there, and I am one of them. I actually have sold 2 of my trip hammers over the past 3 years.
But just so you don't feel toooo bad about it, I probably match up anywhere from 2 or 3 to 6 or 7 buyers and sellers of trip hammers every year (at NO referral cost to any of them).
Most of them contact me BECAUSE I have that collection. Even more folks ask me HOW TO FIND trip hammers for sale and I can almost always point them to the best places for THEM to start looking.
If you know of anyone who needs one right now, simply point them to my getting started blacksmithing page:
http://spaco.org/Blacksmithing/GetStartedBsmthg.htm

Or have them contact me directly at:
spaco@baldwin-telecom.net

If you still feel bad about my triphammer collection, then you certainly don't want to go to my anvils pages or my cub cadet pages or my cushman trackster pages or my--------

Okay, I forgive you. When I bought my 250, people complained to me that the guy who I bought it from paid scrap and then sold it to me for gobs more. I didn't care in the least, because he found it, and I wouldn't have. So I guess that's kinda like your situation. Thanks for helping the lost hammer souls.

I seem to have a collection of cats. And chickens. Lotsa those. I guess I collect things too.

Thanks for not being angry with my presumption, Pete.

Joel

Joel, i got what you were saying.

I think Pete is one of the collectors that does more then hide his stuff away and looks at it like Scrooge. There are advantages to having a selection of tools. One is to be able to know how they work, or how to work them. The other is to be able to make parts for them if needed. So in Pete;s case i think it is a good thing he has a collection of different Blacksmiths tools.
