Anvils can be cheap

Recommended Posts

To all the people I see complaining that they can't find an anvil, or that anvil prices are too high and they can't afford to get into blacksmithing (excuses), here's an example of how cheap it can be.

10" x 4.5" x 5.5" steel blocks = 70# for $20 apiece from a salvage place. That chunk of steel is WAY better than any Harbor Freight piece of junk cast iron anvil. Stood on end for better mass under the hammer, they would work fine for hot metal. Smiths from long ago would have killed to have something as nice as this modern chunk of steel for their anvil.
