Want to build a miniature air hammer

I know a hand held air hammer has only 1 moving part, the piston. I need to view the air circuit so I can build a miniature air hammer. Is the piston also the valve? Thank you, Bill

As you know, there's more than one way to skin a cat;
Have you seen the jackhammer article on "explainthatstuff"? It also has links to 3 patents.

Have you considered that perhaps an air scaler could be adapted to whatever it is you need?

How small is "small", BTW?
