  • Adjustable anvil Stand.

    Hey Y`all,
    Here is a adustable anvil stand I built for my Mouse hole anvil 108LBS. for demos. Since sometimes the ground is not flat at some demos I made it where it would be level where ever it needed to be. Its got all thread to make it level where ever it goes. the legs come off for tansport in my mom`s Nissan X-tera.

          Chris,

          Thanks for the link to the larger images.

          Question: I've seen/heard that you need a more massive stand for proper use of an anvil.
          Something like a large piece of dense tree stump. Your stand looks great, but doesn't meet this criteria. Have I been given incorrect information? I had asked my brother to get me a 3 foot tall log that's 2 foot tall in diameter the next time he goes up to get firewood on which to mount my home made anvil. If that's not necessary, I'd build something closer to what you've done.

          No, I'm not into smithing. I do ornamental iron work ( fencing, railings, furniture, etc..) and machining work.

          thanks,
          Mark

              Hey Mark,
              I am in need of an anvil. I have some RR track, and would like to see some photos of how to make an anvil with it. Some pictures and a brief description would be greatly appreciated.
              Thanks,
              Nick

                67,
                The mass of a stump helps but is NOT needed. That is for demos mainly.

                Bob,
                Yes mom helps load it since i hurt my back. Also hows that bender coming along?

                Nick,
                May I refer you to www.iforgeiron.com lots of info there on RR Track anvils.

                Chris
