Abraham Maslow, the great American philosopher and thinker, had once said, “If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.”
Maybe, providing a solution to all problems related to pulverization of stones for diamonds, Betsy Alwin puts a solar hammer on public display at the Ace of Diamond Mine, Route 28 in Middleville. It has a solar-powered motor that makes the hammer rise and drop with a bang to produce maximum impact.
The exclusive hammer is made of reclaimed materials found here and there. Being solar-powered, the ingenuity seems to save people lot of effort they put in while drilling and crushing those unyielding stones. So it does not involve complicated mechanics, still what it offers is a will to support miners in their arduous task.
