Default Chicago Pneumatic planishing hammer for sale

Iím offering my 24Ē CP planishing hammer plus 5 dies for $5500. if anyone might be interested. I had planned to list it on eBay but when I found out they wanted $100 just to put a reserve price on it I decided to pass till the Fall when eBay activity is back in full swing. The following is what I wrote for eBay minus the shipping particulars. If you want to get a freight quote Iíd say figure 500 pounds mounted on a pallet, I have no way to weigh it exactly.

The following auction is for a 24Ē Chicago Pneumatic planishing hammer I have used in my shop for over 25 years. It is being sold with 5 dies so the new owner will be able to put this hammer to work immediately the day it arrives at his shop. Additional dies are readily available from Michigan Pneumatic Tool (313-933-5890) as well as from Hoosier Profiles (260-301-9034). It comes with air regulator and pressure gauge, a ball valve shut-off / fast restrictor valve plus oiler port valve and an original C.P. wood die holder for 4 dies mounted at the head for fast die changes. There is also a Scott Knight style lock to index directional dies mounted on the lower die post. I have owned several of these hammers over the years and can honestly say this hammer needs nothing, works 100% as it should and has made me $$$ over the years. I raised the lower arm and used this hammer to make over 600 pieces of ducting for the Osprey, one of the best paying jobs Iíve had in my shop. The only reason Iím selling it is because at the age of 69 Iím realizing I need to thin out my excess equipment, I may even auction off my white #2 Pettingell power hammer this fall or sometime next year. Generally I donít run my auctions with reserves but many people just donít go on line during the summer. If this hammer doesnít make the reserve I will run it again without the reserve in late September or early October.

THE HAMMER IS CURRENTLY SPOKEN FOR. I will post if the status changes.

I was going to post the following yesterday but ran out of time. There might be a trick for someone to learn so I will post even though the hammer is very likely sold.
A few more photos. The first 2 photos show the details of the directional die lock / indexer and why you donít have to even touch it when switching to round dies. A photo of a younger me (no white hair) shaping ducting pieces for the Osprey with the lower arm raised up so the pieces could wrap around the arm while shaping. That was quite the job, it took over my whole shop for several months. A photo of my white Pettingell I will auction off at some point in the next year and finally I really did have 3 CP hammers in my shop at one time some 25 years ago. All of this was ready to go on eBay but they have just gotten too greedy lately. Anyway after prepping for the auction I get some satisfaction letting you guys see the photos. ~ John Buchtenkirch

I was looking through an old catalogue this morning, 1978 - and found these ...

I bought some tools from this company back then, and while hunting around there I found a wooden crate in their warehouse that was being used as a step - I got them to open it up and it was a complete (new in wrappers) CP handheld planisher set, complete, deluxe. They wanted $1000 for it which was a fortune back then. I passed on it since I had a Seiden set, a Milwaukee set, and a Ram's Head set.

It's always nice to buy gear from a reputable craftsman ...

Dan Pate picked up my hammer several weeks ago, Iíve just been too busy to post it. Hereís a few photos of Dan testing it (note the professional stance). I also want to mention that Iím not retiring now, just selling off some items that are in excess to my needs, my white #2 Pettingell will probably be the next to go. ~ John Buchtenkirch

Yeah Dan, the short time we spent together swapping information was very enjoyable but it went by too quickly. Most of all I regret you didnít try out my Pettingells to see how consistent / stable their hit points are especially since you are planning on setting up a #2 hammer yourself. You are welcome back any time ~ John Buchtenkirch
