Easy Smith experiences?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just saw an interesting homemade anvil in the California Blacksmith Association's magazine (current issue). It is called "Easy Smith" and was designed by the Brazeal Brothers. It consists of several 2x2" steel bars aligned vertically in a fabricated frame. I tried out their orginal block anvil design, and found it to be a satisfactory substitute for a London Pattern anvil. I did miss the horn for spreading out heart hooks.

Has anybody tried out this design? How is the efficiency? There could be some bouncing and loss of efficiency due to the loose fit of the bars, but I was wondering if anybody had any practical experience. The Brazeal's have some really cool tools and demo's. Haven't seen anything I did not like.
