    I just seen an ad for a plate tamper on Kijiji for a reasonable price. I'm talking about the tall stand up type. It got me thinking if it would be possible to convert it over to a power hammer. Never used one so I'm not sure about the stroke on it and it would need to be slowed down a lot I assume. Might be able to convert it to electric drive.

    Anybody got any info if it would be possible?

    I don't see it being worthwhile. By the time you made all the changes to turn it into a useful power hammer, you could easily build one from scratch.

    Ya I hear you. Been thinking it over and it seems to be to far fetched.
