Pneumatic Jackhammer

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Mon May 08, 2006 12:01 pm

Does anyone know how pneumatic jackhammers work? I've tried looking it up, but I always get the missile. I'm thinking a jackhammer's design could be used for full auto.

I have the same desire...

But, I dont fully understand how the palm nailer works. This would help to understand a possilbe auto-pneumatic design as you pointed out. With the palm nailer when pressure is applied inside the housing for the nail it produces a reporcating motion which we are longing for. Just telling you this so that you can do more research with the subject of reprocating motion produced from a constant air source. I actually have one and took it apart, and still I dont understand how it works. This is a rather compact design also. Good luck finding out how these work, and if you do, please tell me.

What happends is there is a piston, like in a engine, the air comes in presses the "hammer" in to the ground and when the air accepcts, the air pushes it back up, over and over. That is a good idea. Ill look in to it and get back to you. Tennis ball cannon 3 balls a second :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
