RR anvil and bic iron

Recommended Posts

Here is a bic iron and RR anvil I made today.  The blacksmith group I work with wants 3-4 RR anvils for beginners and I had some time today.IMG_1491.thumb.JPG.faa6d4c9eba03441bbc43

I sank a piece of 1" sq tubing into the face to make a 3/4" hardie hole.

 

The rail was new and had no work hardening on the face so I didn't lose anything by milling part of it flat.

I really really thought about trying to draw the horn out on the hammer but,,,

i might try welding some handles on to the next one and give it a go.

If you use 1" radie fullers and set the horn down 1/2" on each side, then draw out the resulting slug to a 2" cone, say 6"long. Gives the rail anvil a destictivly Iron age look.
