hillsideshortleg Posted April 20, 2010 Share Posted April 20, 2010 I am going to start building my homemade hammer and I am starting with the anvil first. This may be backward or wrong but I specialize in backward or wrong so it will be nothing new. My choices are: 24" dia x 3" thick base with a 7" solid round stock welded to it how ever tall you all recomend. I could also double up the base and make it 2- 3" x 24" disc on top of each other with the 7" solid round welded to the top. My other choice is to use the 24" dia. disc (1 or 2) and weld a 8" od x 4 1/2" id tube to the disc and make it however tall you all recomend. I like the idea of the tube so I could drop differant fixtures in the hole and have it rest on the tube wall. The weight of the tube per foot is very close to the weight of the 7" round, around 120 lbs per foot. Looking for any help you all will offer Thanks Rick Nelson Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
