Sorry I seem to have left out an important detail. I meant for securing the anvil to the stand. The stand isn't going to run away Something like this. Sorry for the first grader artwork. I see the comments about melting the straps and yeah, seems like I wasn't thinking that one through.
Hi everyone. I just got my first real anvil and I built a stand for it out of wood 4x4s. Is there anything wrong with putting some eye hooks on the sides of the stand and using ratchet straps pulling in opposing directions to secure it? Is there a better/easier way that I'm not thinking of? I know you can use chains and lag bolts but I already have the straps.
