BMT Forum Bot Posted August 12, 2009 Share Posted August 12, 2009 OK I ask every one to add to this one!!! My single favorite tool in my shop is the air hammer!!! ( followed closely by the flame wrench)I figure out a new use for it almost daily..... (feel as if i'm writing a 5th grade essay)I think between me and everyone else here we should be able to come up with at least 101 uses for the air hammer. (don't forget the safety glassses)I will number mine as I remember them.....1. Most common use in my shop is the "hard to get on with a wrench" hydraulic fitting. I can remove virtually any sized hydraulic fitting with an air hammer exclusively.2. Brake drum removal.3. Throttle lever (breakover arm) on an ambac v-8 pump on an e-9 injection pump. used that one today to get the bastard back on.4. rattling a frozen clutch loose for adjustment.5. removing frame bolts6. rattling rust loose from a truck frame (before sandblasting)7. tie rod ends (not using the pickle fork)8. chipping frozen Manure off the side of my manure tanks (that ones a bit messy)9. remove a snarled mess of plastic twine string from manure beaters, sharp spade bit for that one. (use it to cut them off)10. removing bearing races from shafts11. breaking hard nuts loose.There is my start to this blog......... I will add to it as i remember them or create new uses please do so also!!Oh by the way my weapon of choice is a Snap-On ph3050 with quick attachView the full blog entry Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
