Replaced the hammer with an original I found on eBay.

The block pivot screw had to be re-worked as a replacement was impossible to find.
The threads were broken clean off. I had a decision to make, re-make it from scratch or repair. I repaired it by boring out the old screw and plugging it with a new threaded end held in with rockset.

More to follow.
