Waiting on warmer weather

Recommended Posts

My wife was taking pictures of our son playing in the snow, so I convinced her to take a picture of my next hammer project as it takes up space in my driveway.  Anyone else have a project setting around waiting for warmer weather?

Seems like the anvil is its own piece free from the hammer. Was it free standing in a hole or was it covered in concrete? Don't people sometimes cover the anvil in concrete, maybe more on Massey self-contained ones?

The anvil on this hammer is a separate casting. It sets on crossed timbers 16" thick and is bolted to the concrete foundation below. The manual I have for Massey Clear-space does not show any bolts for the anvil so i"m guessing they grout them in to hold them in place. On this one you bolt the anvil down, set the hammer then use 4 large wood wedges around the anvil to align the hammer with the anvil then bolt the hammer down. Just different ways to skin the same cat!
