RogueGeek Posted February 15, 2017 Share Posted February 15, 2017 So back in September of last year I came across a 1928 Soderfors Paragon 168lb anvil in excellent condition. This thing rings like a church bell and the ball bearing test probably has 90% or better rebound. Unfortunately due to moving twice in 2 months (long story) I never got the chance to put this fine anvil to work. So a few days ago, I decided that since I have my workshop just about setup (cleaned out of moving boxes) I would build a proper stand and get my anvil ready to do some work. The stand is built out of treated 2x6 lumber that I had left over after a deck project. The finished stand probably weights in at 50-60lbs. The stand was assembled with construction adhesive and deck screws. Here is the almost finished setup. I'll be adding about 10' of chain later today to dampen the ringing. Only other thing I have to do is fabricate some way to roll this around when it isn't in use. -Brian Here are a few pics of the anvil and its new stand.
