Fisher Chainmaker's anvil

Recommended Posts

Various small 'stakes' were inserted into the square hole, and a wedge was driven between it and the boss to hold it in place. These 'stakes' served as secondary horns. There was lots of tooling on hand depending on the size and style of chain being made.

The hand made chain made this way was quickly outdated once induction welding and automation came about in the early part of the 1900's.
