    Default FS Large power / forging hammer Lobdel / Nazel #5

    Hi all, My employer is selling our large forging / power hammer. It is a Lobdell / Nazel #5.

    Located in Basalt Colorado. Price is $60,000 OBO

    It was in service until somewhat recently.

    It is partially disassembled in the photos to remove it from our building.

    It was re sealed in the last 15 years I am told.

    I believe it uses 480 volts.

    Here is a link with some specs for it.

    Nazel - United - New England Blacksmiths

    We have cranes to load onto a truck.

    Please PM with any questions.

    May I ask what you made/reworked that required such a large hammer? To bad its currently decomissioned, it would be fun to take for a test drive.

    It was used for ornamental jobs, mostly flattening hot material.

    After some better research and convincing the higher ups the hammer price is 25k $.

    I think that price is much closer to practical. It's still not a sell-it-right-now price, I'd bet... and it's not going to help that it's not under power and is partly disassembled. For $25K a hammer is a risky bet if unproven to run...
    But that's a beautiful beast, I hope it finds a quality home hitting steel for someone.

    I don't know the power hammer marker at all...............or much about them either............but what makes this thing worth that kinda coin? They hard to come by?

    Yes they are hard to come by... and pretty sought after by smiths right now. This is quite an enormous hammer for any small operation to own and operate... just the rigging and installation costs with power and suitable foundation could run $10K or more. And that's if the hammer runs fine right away. Machining costs can be daunting if parts need reworked. Typically the smaller (still big) hammers such as Nazel 2B and 3B command the higher prices in the market, as they are easier and less expensive to deal with logistically.

    Yeah...not an expert by any means but when I would regularly visit the blacksmith websites....any power hammer is hard to find. They do show up occasionally....but not that often. And trying to do smith work without a power hammer is real work. Blacksmithing is hard work. Doing it for making a living is damned near impossible without a power hammer. Kind of like trying to be a machinist for hire without a lathe.
