  1. So who know's anything about this beast. Was told it was from England...no way to confirm. No names, patents, numbers, etc... 5 feet 8 inches long. 12 inches wide. 3 inches tall 4 hardy holes that are different sizes from each other. Smallest just under 1-1/2 inches, largest around 2 inches. All 4 taper as they descend. Weight = heavy...I'm guessing more than 250 lbs.
  2. I will preface my striking anvil build questions below with (I have searched the Forum and read the threads). This is a request for advice from those who have built, used, abused and had experiences with striking anvils. I want to avoid mistakes and make this anvil one time. ONE and DONE! Top is 14 X 4 X 2, which will be welded onto a bottom which is one inch larger (All the way around) than the top or 16 x 6 x 2. Material is MILD STEEL. I have cut a 1 1/8 hardy hole into the anvil which is the hardy shank size of my bottom fullering, cupping and cutoff hardys already built for my anvil. - My current Hardy tools will all fit this striking anvil without having to make new hardy tools. *My Plan is to cut the legs from Pipe at a 9-11 Degree angle (Which in your opinion is better 9 Degree, 10 Degree, 11 Degree angle and why?) - Legs will be 3 inch pipe welded to the bottom 2 inch plate, with supports welded around the bottom of the pipe legs, and bottom plates for anchoring to concrete. *My plan is to set the top height of the anvil at 24 inches or 2 feet high. I am 5-10 ish and shrinking at 49 years old! (What say you on Striking Anvil Height?) SO, What angle on the legs? What Height on the striking surface of the anvil? I'm 5 foot 10 inches tall What mistakes did you make on your striking anvil that you would change if you had it to do over again? THANK you in advance KEVIN KING Fayetteville ARkansas

  4. Hello every one. My name is Sheldon and I am new to this site. I am 20 years old and am learning to work with metal as it is a passion of mine. I have almost finished setting up my smithy and the last things i need to do are mount my blower and fix my anvil. My problem with the anvil that I have acquired (for free I might add just so that I don't get told off for getting a kak anvil) is that it has been broken off at the hardy hole leaving about 1cm of the hole on the anvil itself. The rest of the butt has become lost in time as this anvil was part of the Boer war. Back then the English use to break off the butts of the Afrikaners anvils so that they became less useful as you can all imagine. My question to you all is how (if at all) would I be able to make a repair of this? I had an idea of setting up a square tube (10ml walls) the same dimensions as the original hole sunk into my anvil base and then welded to the broken off edge of the anvil. I can do the same next to it for a pritchel hole. My worry is will this rig be strong enough to withstand the beating a normal hardy hole gets? Or will it just sink deeper and deeper into my base eventually breaking off the anvil again. Many thanks and may the metal we forge be of the best. ps. If photos are needed I will post them.
  5. Here's an interesting one: I haven't found any makers mark whatsoever. It has two hardy holes, on is in the step. Not sure if that is original or was modified later. There is also a strange depression behind the large hardy hole, about 1.5 in in diameter and maybe 3/16" deep. I'm not sure if that is just a flaw or if it has some purpose, like for setting saw teeth. It weighs about 185 lbs. I've been thinking about grinding the top flat and cleaning up all the rust with a wire brush, but I thought I'd post it here before I go and do anything that can't be undone. I can always post more pics or closeups of minute details.
