30 CWT 'Cochrane' Steam Hammer
Andrew Barclay Sons & Co Ltd, Kilmarnock
Anchors were made by a process known as forging. Iron bars, heated in a furnace, were joined together and hammered into shape by anchor smiths. No.1 Smithery's first hammers were hand-powered. Steam hammers, first developed during the 1840's, were quickly introduced at Chatham, enabling larger anchors and other metal items to be forged in the Smithery.
This single-pedestal hammer was installed during the 1950's and used for light forging. During the 20th century, most of the Dockyard's machine tools were painted light green.
