Subject: RE: What did John Henry mean?
I realize this is late on the topic but as I recall driving a steel with a (sledge for those over the pond)hammer - is easier and much more effective if done in this way. LIFT the hammer up then simply allow it to fall onto the end of the steel. I know some you guys will disagree but after you've done 4 hrs of a 10 hour shift - you may be glad you read ma posting.
