That looks like a hammer I saw at Finkl Steel in Chicago, 40 years ago. It was forging billets of tools steel, a bit larger than the piece in your video.
Finkl moved and has modernized its equipment, so it's probably not the same hammer. What company is that?
Damn, I miss Finkl. Their old plant used to be about a mile away from me.
When ever I was jonesing for some heavy industry, I would run up to
Finkltown and watch real men bend raw elements to their will.
On a good day, the Finklmobile would roll across Cortland carrying a giant
red hot billet of steel. From thirty feet away, the radiant heat through
your windshield was like climbing inside a hot oven.

would roll across the street with a glowing chunk of steel, bigger than a
refrigerator, slung under it.
The first time it happened, you would get out of the car to see if the heat
blistered your paint.
Most days, the doors to their forging operations were wide open. I could
stand on the sidewalk and watch 'em for hours.

Yeah, but there is something satisfying about just hitting it with
a bigger hammer.
I mean, a really, really bigger hammer.

You appear to be mistaken. Because that's only 46,500 tons psi, more
than 20% less than Gunner's example. He says he does engineering every
so he must be up on these things. Perhaps he could suggest somewhere
for you to get some remedial training. Best to avoid the embarrassment
of claiming some dinky thing has the highest pressure when we have it
on good authority that much higher pressures are achieved on a
BTW, does anybody know what they're doing with triple the pressure of
the Earth's core, at a warehouse in California? Some kind of advanced
cubic zirconia factory?
