Seattle Scrap Metal Anvil

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone! 

I'm looking for some help from any Seattle members that might know the best place to get a serviceable Anvil shaped object locally (preferably a recycled/scrap piece, i've already found some suppliers for new if this doesn't work out) 

I'm looking for something cheap (<50$) and relatively heavy (40-100 lbs). 

I've called around a couple of the recycling centers (West Seattle, Recycle Depot, Ballard Reuse, and I stopped by Northwest Metals). 

Debating trekking up to Lynnwood recycling center tomorrow. 

Bonus points if they open on saturday or sunday! 

Thanks!

Look up GTTS. 

The scrap yards get their scrap from somewhere. Contact those folks at the source.

GTTS Go To The Source

Much like TPAAAT, what ever your looking for, go to the source to find it.  Steering linkage, then go to the auto repair place, leaf spring, go to the leaf spring repair shop, new metal, go to the seller such as a steel warehouse.

I don't think they're open on the weekends, but If you're willing to come north (I'm outside Monroe), you can visit the amazing Whiteside Steel,  17706 State Route 9 SE, Snohomish, WA 98296.

Places to get improvised anvils; tractor repair shops, earth moving equipment shops, large paving companies, rental yards, hydraulic shops, crane shops, and any place that uses larger machinery. You are looking for large diameter bucket pins, axles, shafts, hydraulic breaker points, forklift forks, blocks of steel, forgings , castings if cast steel-not cast iron.

You also have the BOEING surplus sales in either Kent or Everett and they have some cool stuff go through there.

Just walked out along the back fence line at the casita and like many farms they parked old farm equipment and forgot it...  I was looking at a 14" long 2.5" sq piece of solid stock---and being farm it's often Higher C, and wondering if I should go talk to my landlord...At 95?he's not likely to need it again.    Saw several other pieces with sq holes suitable for hardy tooling use  too and some light duty 1.5" sq stock.

Ehli auctions in Tacoma has some steel right now.

They have a lovely piece that's about 1500lbs but moving it will be a chore, and on a weekday.

It's lot 401 on the month end auction.
