I Forge Iron

First anvil and stand

Recommended Posts

The anvil is a 9" piece of railroad track I picked up for $5 from an estate sale. The stand is 4 - 2x8s about 2.5' long attached to a .5" plywood base. It is filled with adobe (cat litter clay and sand). The railroad track sits vertically on top. I later added a fullering tool. The setup works well for knives.

Nice, very Nice!!!
People who start out with humble but effective means always gains my respect.
Blacksmithing is all about inovation. And that is to get good at using what you have
and never let anyone else limit your dreams and ability! ;)

Very nice start, and I expect that we will be seeing some nice work come from your shop!
The best to you and Welcome To I Forge Iron!!!
