  1. Should have the first 3lb prototype before Christmas hopefully.
  2. No trouble at all. I wasn't trying to sound rude! Thanks everyone for the advice and ideas.
  3. Not trying to argue, but I am actually gonna enter this into a competition for michigan that can get me scholarships depending on how I place. Its called Mites Competition.
  4. I did a bit of interrogation out of my Instructor, and he honestly doesnt know how big we can cast it. We are going to start small, like 5lb and slower work our way up until we simply cannot get the capacity out of our schools foundry. anybody know where to get coal or coke in/near Kalamazoo Michigan?
  5. I read somewhere that a large bonfire would put out enough heat to possibly harden the anvil. However, would that harden the whole anvil? And if it did harden the whole thing would it be detrimental to the strength of the anvil? Also I reshaped the heel of the anvil so its not as long and thin, as suggested by some people. I will post an updated picture soon!
  6. What if I used a torch for heat treatment
  7. Yeah and the best part is that its a free class in my high school. Not to brag or anything but my school has the largest shop in a Michigan school.
  8. I see what you mean Thomas. im thinking that it will not be much of a problem, considering that other students are currently making gun cabinets and a recurve bow. My project seems to be simple compared to the laminations that we have had to do on the recurve bow.
  9. No, I have not. according to my teacher we have the tools necessary to mold and cast it ourselves... I wonder if he knows knows how big this project really is..
  10. I asked my EFE teacher, and he agreed to let me mill this out. possibly in wood and then cast it.
  11. I downloaded an anvil and used it as my inspiration Anvil.pdf
