Hi, 

I have a disability with my left hand. I have for the last 2 years or so tried to just keep working and hope that I would beat it. It has actually gotten worse and is now, trying to hold tools in that hand has just gotten to hard. I know that those things aren't being made anymore. I am putting some feelers out there to see if there are any used ones available. Thanks for the help.

I do have a power trip hammer at my Colo. home, but

won't be there until June.  It runs off a electric motor to

a flywheel and has trip lever which can be foot or hand operated.

It has a adjustable drop.  It weighs about 300 lbs.  I just picked it

up in June 2018 and broke my femur July 2018  I Can't remember

the mfg. I't was in wonderful condition with all the paint on it.  If

I can remember the name i will let you know. The attachment is very

That's a lot of overkill for tooling leather or setting rivets or snaps!  More suitable for a blacksmith shop.

Edit:  There is a Facebook page for support.  I see people have been selling or asking to buy.  "Power Mallet Leather Carvers"

Someone a while back suggested a tool named the Gravermax made by GRS as an alternative.

Thanks bud. I will definitely check that out.
