  1. Hello, I came across a set of forks and had to take them home. I just want to hear people’s  thoughts about using this for home made anvil, possibly a home made power hammer, or just using the material for sharp blades or axes etc… They have some writing on them too. A356401C-52F6-4E2E-9AD5-E8CB6F4F0105.thumb.jpeg.c3ca1fec8bb5da32ac1bf05a47827e83.jpeg6D7EC131-9F33-439D-8CCB-673E119354D3.thumb.jpeg.6a3ae7f8f690f340786f9046f9fd0ef3.jpegBF8002D4-F84E-4B54-A143-03EE6BDB3B4F.thumb.jpeg.637d4e9483810d386cd6f7e1c0e865eb.jpeg5141F0D6-2087-476E-9705-7A6DC0259986.thumb.jpeg.b8bc5be907e7cb50c5d5a8a4048a295b.jpegE3227870-52D6-42FF-AA57-31AA53526CFA.thumb.jpeg.9fa427a7937d6726ab7c13112026c93c.jpeg97818C0A-8468-4B6F-9DA0-241A4B9F2CEF.thumb.jpeg.f59c19e555428a17d10176a426c05f1d.jpeg


  2. Here is a snapshot of it running, no insulation yet. It does have flairs at the end of the torch to help with back pressure. But I am sure she will need tweeking when the insulation wct is completed...



  3. Hello to all, newbie here with my 1st gas 2 burner forge attempt. Made from 30 gallon propane tank. I am currently setting and tuning up Tee burners. Any and all comments are welcome...

    Thanks ...




  4. My 5lb hammer bounces about 6 times from about a 3” drop. Not very scientific but seems good to me over most of the surface... I was thinking about putting 1/8” rubber black gasket material under the block to help with the ringing. Would that affect the rebound from the block not being in direct contact with the plate? I don’t know what type of steel the block is. But the sides of the block has what appears to be die lines. If you zoom in on the block you can see them clearly. Not sure if that is a hint or not?

I created this Anvil from a 8”x9”x5” block of steel for top block. Corralled by a 1”x1”x1/4” angle. Supported by a 13.5”x13.5”x1” plate, on top of a I-beam measuring about 12”x12”x2’x107lbs/ft. It weighs about 360lbs. I drilled 13/16” holes for 3/4” x 18” rebar removable handles for easy moving. I still have 1” gussets to be welded under the top plate to the I-beam, as well as heavy gauge wire mesh for shelving inside the beam web to hold hammers, tools, ect... 


    It has a nice rebound and ping at this point even without the gussets in place. My next major decision is to decide if I should weld a 3/8”x3.5”x9” piece of AR500 plate in the center of the steel block?  I know the steel block will deform over time. So should I or shouldn’t I face the top block with hardened plate? Any and all comments are welcome...
