Hammers are, undoubtedly one of the most commonly used kits by mechanics, plumbers, electricians, handymen, and even a garage-geek. But what troubles most of the time is, the way we use it. Manual hammers or ‘hammers’ lack a great cut of efficiency while you use them by hands to push nails. But what if we automize the process with motor power? Yeah, that’s what they call an ‘Auto Hammer’. It’s one of the finest edition in any workman’s tools inventory and everyone loves using it. But apart from the sweet side, there comes a number of critical works that are required to perform with auto hammers. One of them is to know how to power auto hammer as a beginner. As every electrical aspect of tools like auto hammers matter a lot, it’s important to master on powering up it.

That’s why we’ve decided to come up with a full guide on how to power auto hammers. Keep reading to explore the step-by-step guide-

How to Power Auto Hammer: Beginner’s Guide

What Is An Auto Hammer and How Does It Work?

Traditional hammers are what we use on daily basis to work with nails. But with the propagation of technology, we’ve got an effective updated of this- the Automatic Hammer or Auto hammer. What it does is, it can disperse nails on any work/job with a single push of a button. You don’t need to imply any manual force like the typical hammers. Instead, it will work on motor power. How to Power Auto HammerAll you have to do is to load a collated set of nails in the hammer, power it up and push the button at the right time and right place. To prevent any kind of injury or damage to the workpiece, there is a safety switch adjusted on the auto hammer itself.

Considering the application, it seems pretty similar to nail guns. But when you have to deal with a less number of nails and when the nail gun is not available in your workshop, an auto hammer can do the job pretty well.

Powering An Auto Hammer

As auto hammers are mechanically driven tools, there should be ways to power it up. But the fact is, to many of its users, it seems to be a pretty hard job to power them up. However, we’ve done our research on this very topic and come up with several ideas to on how to power auto hammer with ease.

Let’s go through the process of powering them up with LV/HV wires-

Powering Auto Hammers Using LV/HV Wire

One of the simplest and cheap ideas to power up auto hammers is to use LV/LH wires.   You may wonder about the availability or the price of such LV/HV wires. Well, you can avail them in nearby stores and they are cheap enough. All you have to do is to rout them until you get EnderIO power conduits.  If you want to connect multiple of them together, you need to make one ‘Wire connector’ for each of the auto hammers and connect them right away.   You need to create another one for the generator. As you are done, connect the generator connector to the relay. Next, connect all of the machine connectors to the same relay.   Now, test and look for any mismatch in the system. If you found none of them the auto hammer should be powered up fine.

How Auto Hammers Works After Powering

Now as you’re done with powering the auto hammer up, it’s time to check the rest of the operation. Let us simplify the rest of the working procedure-

Auto hammers have two input slots that can hold a pile of materials(nails). There is an internal inventory of 20 slots. In total, it can consume 40/RF per second to perform one single operation. In that manner, it can consume 5333 RF to hammer one block of the workpiece. You can insert the blocks into the slot as input and the kits that you can use are pipes or hoppers.

Bottom Line

Auto hammers are great once you’ve powered them up properly. But you can enhance the efficiency and workload of them using diamond hammers into the empty slots of them. We hope that this full guide on how to power auto hammers will help you on your beginning of using an auto hammer tool.
