My anvils and scale replicas

Recommended Posts

First one is a 200# Hay-budden. Replica started out as a piece of scrap l-3/4" A-36 plate.


Second is a 398 lb. Soderfors stampted 1918. Replica started out as a piece of scrap 1-1/2" A-36 plate.

The scale replicas were made by hand using track and hand cutting torches, disc grinder, belt sanders both portable and stationary, various files and flux-core mig. Lots of hand sanding too. No kind of milling involved.

As you can see, I've had them for a while. It's only been recently that I've learned to post pictures, so here they are.

Both anvils were my Dad's RIP, who blacksmithed for over 50 years.

Names' Quench.

Someone had entirely too much time on their hands there.... Very nice pieces though.

Well, working night shift in a heavy steel fabrication shop with no bosses around made it all possible. I'd arrive at work in the afternoon, they would give me a turnover, do what was required with plenty of time left over to work on my anvils. Otherwise it would have never been possible.
