Homemade pipe anvil needs filling?

Recommended Posts


I picked up these two pieces today:



Looks like an anvil to me! However I need to fill it with something. I was thinking maybe just some Portland cement. Right now it's not heavy enough so it bounces. I also didn't want to fill it with something that will kill the bounce. Suggestions?

I also need to mount it so that I don't hammer bent over on the floor, and punch a couple of holes in it.

I don't exactly know if that will work. With the metal being struck, the cement would disintegrate. Basically, you'd have a sandbag to hammer on. There would be little rebound. If you call around to machine shops, you might find some off cut chunks to use as an anvil. But, I would discourage using pipe.
