Der Presslufthammer/ Experiment No.07

Material/ Jackhammer, compressor, tubes
Measures/ various
2016/ Berlin/ Germany

Set-up and Execution/
A kind of beam compass is constructed with the tip of the jackhammer. For that purpose, a pipe is anchored into the floor of a large room. To one side of another, about 3 cm long, pipe, a jackhammer is soldered, to the other a pipe clamp. The pipe clamp is screwed around the pipe, which is firmly anchored in the floor, but only so tightly that it can still rotate. The jackhammer is connected to a compressor by a tube.
The jackhammer will carve a circular track into the floor.
