Jackhammer



I just finished building a little jackhammer a couple days ago, for no reason other than I was curious how they worked, and there is no better way to find out than to build a working model.
The display stand is a small burl from a Popular tree. It is not a bolder, but a good representation of one.
Yes, it does go Rat-a-tat-tat, or maybe more of a Putt Putt Putt, but it does work, and only requires a few pounds pressure from an Air Brush Compressor.

I always look forward to finding a new post here, your models never cease to amaze me. The Pantanenome, miniature punch press and Dundee foundry engine are near the top of the long list of my favourites.

Thanks for sharing.
