Mechanical Power Hammer - Motor Mount

By mounting the motor on a pivoting mount the weight of the motor will keep the AX drive V-belt tensioned properly. The motor mount pivots on a 1" diameter shaft welded to a plate. Positioning of the motor had to allow for clearance of the clutch bellcrank engagement mechanism and also tension the drive belt.

My friend Leon Barber cut the motor mount plate with his plasma cutter. Thank you Leon!
