KST1-Derek Fultz Posted September 30, 2011 Share Posted September 30, 2011 While at my steel supplier yesterday I stumbled across a 5" x 5.5 foot piece of solid round. I ended up bringing it home for a good price thinking that I could use it for a treadle or power hammer anvil build. It calculates to ~367.5lbs for the whole piece. Obviously, at 5.5" tall it's a bit high for an anvil as is. I know about the 1:10 - 1:25 hammer to anvil ratio stuff, so I'd obviously like to keep as much of it as possible. Cut to 3 feet it will only be 200#. I can cut it in half and use both pieces, but 2.25' seems short (I'm 6'7"). Just curious what you guys/gals would do. Any thoughts? Can I use this, or should I keep looking for something a bit bigger around/heavier? -Derek Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
