i am a hobbyist knifemaker and need plans to build a tire hammer.
I pulled this "Price is $30US including postage to US and Canada, Send check or money order to Clay Spencer, 73 Penniston Pvt. Drive, Somerville, AL 35670.

The tire drive is the critical part, it can be adapted to a number of designs. I prefer one that puts the tire and motor down near the floor. It makes for a more stable machine.
Do a search for
Ray Clontz Tire Hammer Plans by Clay Spencer
and you will get a bunch of hits, which include some good pictures, or message me direct and we can talk about design ideas.
I looked at building a tire hammer but all the designs I found took up so much floor space that I went with an air hammer instead.
Here is a short video of it in use making a Damascus / Pattern welded billet.
From the time you're born till' you ride in a hearse, there's nothing so bad it couldn't be worse!
All of the tire hammer designs I have seen call for about a 2x3 or a 3x4 footprint. A Rusty style might be a bit more, but doesn't need nearly as much overhead height.
Your air hammer is cool but it needs a bunch more anvil and bolting it down would help a lot. That side to side hula is scary.
