A fifty pound Little Giant Power Hammer on display in the machine shop at the Industrial Heritage Museum.
This power hammer was built in 1929 by Mayer Brothers Little Giant Inc. in Mankato, Minnesota. It was in production from 1896 to 1984 and was produced in sizes from 25 to 500 pounds. It’s the weight of the ram coming down that determined the size of the hammer.
The Mississippi Industrial Heritage Museum, located in Meridian, Mississippi, is the home of the last intact steam engine factory in America. Once the Soule Steam Feed Works, the museum is an industrial time capsule dating in appearance to around the end of the industrial revolution.
