Anvil/tooling stand height

Recommended Posts

I've been usin the same anvil and tooling stand for 5-6 years I guess. The tooling stand is what I call a steel stump (cast base, pipe upright and a piece of 1" plate on top to clamp tooling down on). With tooling installed, it kinda works on my arm (height). I had a brain fart and placed a piece of bridge plank on the floor (I guess it's 2" thick, couple feet long and about a foot wide). This xtra height makes a WORLD of difference. Never needed it on the anvil but guaranteed it helps on the stand. Old guys need all the help they can get.......

Ten, are you or is the anvil standing on the plank. Is your anvil on knuckle or wrist height?
I have a tree stump on which the anvil sits, fixed with chain. Top of the anvil is 1.5" above my knuckle height. Works for me.
