      Why wouldn't those pieces be hardened instead of soft steel

    2. Evan Jarvis

      How do you turn it off? Or, make it stop..?

    3. Evan Jarvis

      Pancake... then block

    4. Evan Jarvis

      Hey Alec.. How can I learn how to forge?

    5. Jeffrey Erlich

      Every time I watch you make coffee it makes me sad. Get a grinder! freshly ground beans are so much better. Also try a Hario V60 pour over. for each gram of coffee add 12 mL of 85˚C water + 10mL. E.g. 40 grams of coffee = 490 mL of water

    6. Outlaw Pawley

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="340">5:40</a> THATS NOT THE GRINDING ROOM ALEC!!!!!

    7. John Hosky

      New video title: How to make a zweihander in 5 minutes, instead of 15 episodes....

    8. SentinalSlice

      You should make a metal cane

    9. SentinalSlice

      Now you can make so many swords

    10. RavenMad Misc

      You ever going to re paint the thing? Just curious

    11. robert shaw

      Well, Alec That is quite an accomplishment. BUT, you can save that monster motor by brazing the broken parts. Keith Rucker is the guy to help with that. You must have apprenticed when you were 12 or so to get to own a machine shop at 18. You are all a bunch of high school guys - amazing. I know you are proud of your new hammer. How about getting it all cleaned up and giving it a nice coat of paint. Restore it, don't just make it work. Be safe - keep your distance.

    12. Ceirren

      The woman in the background when you did the first hot metal test, is that your wife?

    13. Marrock V

      You really need to be blasting some Motörhead when you're running that hammer, it's the only music that can do it justice.

    14. Meetim

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="600">10:00</a> Alec's incredible skill and control in squaring up that steel is evident in that shot.

    15. J Din

      Now that's a hammer.

    16. junkyard blacksmith

      A 3c Chambersburg is an awsome hammer. I was ruined early in my career by being introduced to power hammers on a 2c. Most other hammers dont quite measure up.

    17. Max GmBH

      You should Hang the camera from the celing when filming with this

    18. robert miller

      when you resurfaced the dies, you went from just repairing to restoration.

    19. Westsidesnooker 2020

      Part 36:. We finish engraving the hammer and setting the stones consisting of diamond and tanzanite with Platinum inlay Part 137: hammer is finished

    20. Michael Fix

      That thing is a beast!!!

    21. Joel

      That face! <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="222">3:42</a>

    22. PelaajaW

      How did i miss this part 3

    23. Blood Stone

      thinking about the damaged motor, if its cracked, I am wondering if you could removed the core, and fix the body of the motor itself. Perhaps use it for something else, and not leave it outside. Unless your shipping it off to be refurbished, if nothing else you could melt the copper down and recycle the steel into something else.

    24. Binary Fission

      I am always recommending people watch your channel, not just for the work you do but to show that a young person with drive and determination can get a great education in a valuable skill. I'm not speaking against getting a degree just saying that no matter how you get your education, keep learning. Please keep posting you are an inspiration.

      Y do u have as SA flag

      1. Timothy S.

        Most of his flags were sent/given to him by fans

    26. lepompier132

      Hey Alec, maybe you should look if at the top of the RAM should be a spring or a bumper to absorb the ram going up. I would not be surprised that something is missing inside that cylinder and that is why they were selling it. Check that before busting the top.

    27. Ky-nolo-ren

      Damn he ugly

    28. Christopher Manella

      What brought you to the states?

    29. Brian Chappell

      that thing works beautifully now all it needs is to look beautiful... paint that butt ugly machine..its definitely an eye sore in that nice shop

    30. Hyde Almen

      Why don’t you hit harder than steel please make a more in depth analysis

    31. cris rose

      just watching the dimensions of that cylinder swap...

    32. Marcos Linberg

      Hey guys, I'm a few days late, but great work!! Nice to see this big thing working!

    33. victor Azevedo

      Ok ! You win ! It is a thing’ regardless ! I’m me! No worries!

    34. Rob Byram

      The smile on you face when you hit that first chunk of steel though...

    35. giacomo aliboni

      Alec: “this thing eats steel” it better not eat Steele too!

      1. bssni touir

        Should his wife worry about the rival there lol

    36. Jakub Perhac

      Are You OK Alec? You look kinda tired, get some sleep man :)

      1. bssni touir

        one from scratch. I look forward to seeing what y'all will make with it.

    37. sam prutsman

      Try to crack an egg with the power hammer without breaking the yoke.

    38. Aparkz UK

      Alec you went to Enfield Grammar School didn't you ?

    39. Gagik Ginosyan

      be.. carefull using it guys this is a no joke monster.

    40. brian martuszewski

      That was Jesse James son in background. Just kidding

    41. Brandon Morgan

      You could eat soup out of this one lolol

      1. sotuur aeei

        treadle depression controls piston actuation length, but IDK how these things are calibrated....)

    42. Blood Creek Blades

      This just dawned on me, uh why is there not fireman’s pole coming off of the second floor??????

      1. sotuur aeei

        If you can't fix the hitting the top issue by valve tuning, why not limit your treadle movement. Something under it to prevent it depressing enough to cause a top hit? (I'm assumi

    43. John Kimble

      The true meaning of 'heavy metal'!

    44. Justin Schwake

      I enjoy that there is a really metal backtrack to these guys just giggling over this machine.

    45. GLENN NISSEN

      why not limit the travel of the pedal then you won't push all the way down on it.

    46. Rafał Buzun

      maybe its hitting top because its old piece of crap

      1. sotuur aeei

        Anyone else thing "Hot Steele" would be the name of Alec's sex tape? lol

    47. bssni touir

      "That's a big old piece of steel" ..... The title of your sex tape!

      1. sotuur aeei

        You should paint it :)

    48. DaMarineShh

      If you decide to paint it i recommend red

    49. The Lucondrix

      I want one now...I wonder how much it would take to biuld a modern one. It made me smile to see one of these running. Hopefully one I'll luck up and either find one, or biuld me one from scratch. I look forward to seeing what y'all will make with it.

      1. The Lucondrix

        And took several minutes of running before it did that

      2. The Lucondrix

        @bssni touir That could be the case, I've personally seen it happen before with powerhammers and other tools. And sense they are all connected together the vibrations and kinetic force, combined with the torch and sear power it could break itself very easily, and we used to have a small powerhammer at the local FFA biulding at the local high school that was around when my grandfather went there. It got broken by a 10 year old whom decided to play with it...He also lost his hand that day. LoL. Poor kid but at least he learned a lesson even if it was the hardway. It had snapped the inside of several parts instead of breaking the motor mounts though.

      3. bssni touir

        just had a thought.. do you think the electric motor was fractured because somebody was slamming the hammer faces together and the shock waves kicking back thru the

    50. Alex H

      Should his wife worry about the rival there lol

    51. Jonathan baker

      Still selling crap promo work and not doing much steel work.

    52. sotuur aeei

      That moment when you are back in your element. "I AM COMPLETE!"

    53. kloudedmind

      Yall should race on different forges and power hammers and build swords. Its be entertaining. Then send me one :D

    54. Emmery Cheung

      Damn so nice to see it al coming together.

    55. Steve Easton

      Do me a favour Alex. Give that very special machine a coat of paint will ya. Or is this on the menu? Keep the vids coming. Your so damn addictable. Regards Steve.

      1. sotuur aeei

        Hey guys from Australia I think I felt that ram hitting all the way over here 🇦🇺

    56. Todd Chevrier

      HOT DAMN! That bad boy has some power!

    57. Angus Nicoll

      If you can't fix the hitting the top issue by valve tuning, why not limit your treadle movement. Something under it to prevent it depressing enough to cause a top hit? (I'm assuming treadle depression controls piston actuation length, but IDK how these things are calibrated....)

    58. Will Wheeler

      Id like his vids if he wasnt such a silly wanker

    59. S D Birse

      Put a bump stop under the treadle. If you can’t push it all the way down then you can’t throw the ram through the top. Of weld a wee bit of steel to the underside of the treadle, in case a smart arse decides to move the bump stop

    60. Chris McGill

      Damn, that thing is mean.

    61. Jakob Voogd

      You should paint it :)

    62. Artemis Aprita

      Anyone else thing "Hot Steele" would be the name of Alec's sex tape? lol

    65. wayne p

      just had a thought.. do you think the electric motor was fractured because somebody was slamming the hammer faces together and the shock waves kicking back thru the machine frame broke the motor frame

    70. Dee Jay

      You should have the original motor rebuilt so that you can have it as a backup.

    71. deathsicon

      I think once the cylinder smack is solved its time to set up your biggest project to date to inaugurate your biggest hammer

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="494">8:14</a> I think you need to put the hammer camera on a more isolated mount, watching the impact broke my monitor stand.

    74. Pikero24

      Looks like you're going to have to isloate your tripods while that thing is hitting!

    79. aklein318

      Alec & team, I gotta ask..... It seems you bought this power hammer with the understanding that it had a good motor, and was ready to go. Upon arrival that wasn't the case. Was there any recourse in that regard?

      1. Timothy S.

        I believe he stated at one point the person here bought the hammer from helped out by paying for the new motor
