Affordable · Easy to Learn · Easy to Use
The Mechammer Mark II is the easiest planisher on the market to learn to use. It is a “set it and forget it” machine that does not require constant adjustment like other machines.
It can planish aluminum and steel with equal ease and yet does not require an air compressor.
A complete tooling suite is available, including beading, tipping, and rapid shaping anvils. Any planishing anvils are usable in the Mechammer Mark II.
The Mechammer Mark II has a true variable speed foot control, so beginners can master it faster than any other planisher.

How the Mechammer Mark II Works
The operating principal of the Mechammer Mark II consists of a mechanical piston creating alternately positive and negative pneumatic pressure which reciprocally moves a ram in a cylinder. By employing a pneumatic ram, hammer blows are actually cushioned, and automatically adjusted for the thickness of the gauge of metal being planished or shaped.
Unlike traditional planishers, there is no “clamping” of the workpiece and the operator is more easily able to maneuver the panel between the hammer and the anvil. Not having to develop a “feel” for panel movement and pressure accelerates the operator´s learning curve dramatically.
