Steam Hammer, 1955
R G Ross & Son, Glasgow
Steam hammers played an important role in iron and steel shipbuilding. They were used as part of the forging process to hammer iron, heated in furnaces, into shape. They were located in workshops across the Dockyard including No.1 Smithery where they were used for forging heavy anchors. During the 20th century, most of the Dockyard's machine tools were painted light green.
This double-legged 5-ton hammer was installed in No.1 Smithery in 1955 and later dismantled when the Smithery ceased production in 1974. It has been re-erected here as part of the works to restore and adapt the building.
