    Tuomas, you inspired me to make my own RR track anvil. I don't need one, and I'll probably never actually use it, but the notion of making it look like an anvil struck my fancy.

    NICE JOB, I HAVE FIVE TEN FOOT RAILROAD TRACKS THAT I BOUGHT 15 YEARS AGO. AS IT TURN OUT THE HAVE THE "CARNEGIE STEEL CO" LOGO FORGED INTO THEM AND I FOUND OUT THAT THEY ARE QUITE VALUABLE. SO I HAD TO RESORT TO EBAY TO BUY FOR COMMON RAILS AS THESE ARE WORTH UP TO $1000.00 A FOOT.
    ONLY DUE TO THE HISTORICAL VALUE THAT CARNEGIE MADE THEM IN THE 1800'S.
    CRAZY HUH?

    Nice! I have a small bit of rail about that length. Was going to just dress up the top a bit, but you've inspired me to do the same with mine!

    How many wheels did this take?
    A lot of credit needs to go to the Bosch grinder.

    Yep. Grinder does to work, one just holds it on the desired places. That really was a great grinder.. small an light weighted, still with 850w motor.

    Took four 2mm cut off wheels. One 8mm grinding wheel. ( only partly ) Little from 40 & 80 grit flap wheels and 80 and 120 grit fiber discs.

    For the stand one and a half 1mm cut off wheel.

    Something like that..

    Grinding wheels and fiber discs we're 3M Cubitron 2 products, those work specially well with hard materials.
