  1. Why do so many guys anvil stands look like welded scrap metal, they have no skills, they adopted a red headed step child, or just flat don't about the most used tool in the smithy. No matter what your stand is made of make it nice. I have seen all sorts of ugly terrible way guys fasten their anvils. Seen guys working on a stand that wobbles all over the place. It's were we spend most of our time. It should be the best managed, looked after, efficient, and usable piece of equipment in our smithy. Here are some tips and pics of my stand. So wood, metal, stone, or Kryptonite get a
  2. Thanks to njanvilman ive been able to identify my anvil and thanks to a bunch of old fashioned elbow grease I've finally got my stand done, my anvil wire wheeled and a nice coat of lindseed oil cooked on. Even made a nameplate at work for free identifying the anvil in case i kick the bucket so the next guy will know what it is haha. Tell me what you think. Constructive criticism is welcomed. PS I know the anvil needs to be attached to the stand. Right now I just have it routed out and set in the pattern.
  3. I have been working on a new stand for my PW, since I purchased the anvil two years ago. I gathered the wood, construction lumber, and started thinking about how I was going to start the project. I started thinking my garage floor is level, checked with a level, should be able to get the wood glued together and flat. Predrilled over size holes to allow for adjustments, should work. Got some threaded Rod, nut, flats and locks, let's get started. Spread the construction adhesive, slide all of the pieces together, snugged up the nuts banged the boards to make sure they we
  4. Not quite done, I would like to wrap flat stick around the top and add some flare. I'm getting married in a week tho so that's bin taking up my time lately. Anyways just wanted to show my progress . after cutting up the railroad tie I used boiled linseed oil to seal the ends. Screwed the upright ties to the bace and ran threaded rid through it. I haven't sucred it to the ties yet either I was thinking flat stock heated up and pounded fold over the anvils feet. Any thoughts or criticism is welcome. Thanks guys!
  5. Got a little time today to start a stand for my new anvil. Plan on using this both inside and out so incorporated in some legs that are adjustable so can get it close to level wherever it decides to rest. Didn't have much time today so this is a work in progress. Started out with a 1" steel plate for the base. The legs are made from 2-1/2" x 1/4" square tube. The feet are made from 4" SCH 80 pipe that have 1-1/8" Grade 8 bolts for the adjustment. The bolts are welded to a piece of 1/2" plate with the nut concealed up inside of the 2-1/2" tube, The 4" pipe has a 1/2" plate welded with a 1
  6. My old anvil stump rotted away! I decided to replace it with one made of treated yellow pine. I hope that this one may last as long as I'll need one! I built it in two stacked tiers of closely spaced stringers. The bottom tier has stringers running perpendicular to the long axis of my anvil. The next tier is built with the stringers running parallel to the long axis of my anvil. I used treated two X eights for the stand and pre drilled for nails. I used 5" galvanized ring shank spikes to join with. The finished stand is 14 3/4" tall and 22" X 16" overall. I bought two 16' lengths but h
  7. I somewhat finished my anvil stand. I'm just happy I've finally got it off the floor. Still working to secure the anvil to the stand but give me a bit of time and I'll have it done.

  10. The Peddinghaus I got is SO NICE and SO NEW I decided it needed it's own custom dedicated brand new stand, so I have been taking evenings and fabricating one. Kept it s the horn protrudes over the edge for extra free space when bending big things around it, plus extra stability over the 2 legs, Added a little tray for holding things like punches, lube can, chisels and rivets and stuff, with a hammer ring and a bending fork/tool holder out the other end. I would have liked to use something more substantial then 1/4" plate but that's what I had, hence the gusset, and figured I would ridgidize th
  11. Hi all, Haven't been around for far too long, but it looks like I'll having a nice forging workshop set up in the next few weeks. I want to do my anvil stand this weekend, and I've been looking at plans. The easiest material for me to get and use right now is angle iron, about 6x35mm, or around 1/4" thick and 1 3/8" wide on each side. My plan was to make a tight fitting angle-iron base for the anvil, and then weld 4 feet at a slight angle. Of course, I would then use either the same (or slightly lighter) angle iron to make bars going between the feet for added stability. Most builds I
