Here is my collection of improvised anvils. The fork lift tine anvil is made out of 2 forks that where 8 inches wide and 2 inches thick. My inspiration was the old mideval German hornless anvils mixed with Brian Brazeal. I wanted an anvil I could use in multiple ways, and I hadn't seen one made exactly like this. It weighs somewhere between 435 -450 lbs. It's final dimensions are the face is 8 inches wide, 2 inches thick, and 26 inches long, it is 12 inches tall. The Brian Brazeal style riser/ horn is 4 inches high. It is completely reversible. Total cost was $50 for the used tines and $25 for cutting wheels, flap wheels, and welding rod. Total $75. The post anvil is 20.5 inches high and 5 inches in diameter. I was told that it was the ram off an oil drilling rig and that it was made of some Chinese super steel that I can't remember what it was, it's weight is about 120 lbs. The rail road track is 19.5 inches long and is supported by a fish plate cut in half and bolted back on to help keep the middle Web vibrations down. I got the inspiration for this one from Moose Forge, it's weight is 136 lbs. I bought the post anvil and track from a blacksmith who was moving. The cost for these two where $62. I put my 125 lb soderfors in front of them for size reference.
