Tooling for power hammers. Most power hammers can be adjusted to accept hand-held dies and spring-swages and other hand-held tools. This the same tooling used with air hammers. Some of these tools can be extremely valuable for complex shaping of the iron in single heat. These tools work best when flat dies are installed in the hammer.
