New anvil stand

Recommended Posts

If you stand up straight next to the stump and you let your arm dangle relaxed where is the top of the anvil wrt your arm?

For me for fine work, (blades, small ornamental work, etc) I find that the top of the anvil should be around my wrist.  For heavy work with sledges for me it should be down around my knuckles to midway between my knuckles and my finger tips.  The true test is: does your natural swing hit the face of the anvil flat? Can you work all day without bending over to see better and so can you work all day without your back hurting afterwards?
