Dave good question! Not sure although it may not be as much as you would think. From what I've read online the steam was only used to lift the Hammer up, then the steam was released and gravity took over slamming the Hammer down on the object. Of course I would imagine the hammering part must have been quite heavy to require steam to lift it. Of course the bigger the Hammer then more steam was required to lift it.

Michael and Rick thank you; it's a start. Now all I have to do is figure out the best arrangement for the stuff going into the Hammer Room. Should be fun!

If I had a hammer, I'd hammer in the morning. I'd hammer in the evening, All over this land. I'd hammer out danger, I'd hammer out a warning, I'd hammer out love between my brothers and my sisters, All over this land.

Rob thank you for the nice compliment. This is probably the most fun build I've done. Not sure yet if this is going to end up as a small diorama or maybe even a six foot module; we'll have to see. I'm going to stretch this out as long as I can though.

Work continues on the addition:



This is the frame for the Forge Furnace which was made from 1/8 inch square stock glued together. It measures a scale 9 ft. long by 9 ft. high and 4 ft. deep. The entire frame work will be covered in a thin card painted flat black.



Figured that I needed to make this next to be sure everything is going to fit. Hopefully I can make a working door and have an actual firebox panted yellow/orange to make it look hot. The furnace compared to the Hammer is also massive. The tall beam against the wall is the start of the forge crane to swing the hot metal from the furnace over to the Hammer, hopefully.

That's about it for now. Lots of ideas going on in my head for this. Any comments/suggestions welcomed.

Michael glad your following along. I have the idea for the furnace, and the rest of the addition, in my head so I guess the trick will be to go from brain to finished item.

Mike thank you and that's only part of the hammer. This will certainly be a lot different build compared to the main Shop.

Fluorescent yellow, orange and red might look good for flames.

Like I said if you had a hammer! Nice framework!

You know you could get one of those campfire led lights and make it really look cool!!

Rick thanks that's a great idea, I'll have to see if I can find any.

Jerry that's a great idea too. Actually my wife has some battery operated L.E.D.'s that I could paint if I can sweet-talk her out of a set.

Thanks guys both ideas will give me something to think about.
