    Pretty, small and useful anvil.





    How to make a pretty and useful anvil.
    Again and with emotion I have developed a tool for my hobbies. This time it is an anvil from a piece of rail track. Many hours of hard but nice work. And, now I am very happy to have registered in Homemadetools! (please sorry my poor English).

    Cómo hacer un yunque bonito y útil.
    Nuevamente y con emoción he elaborado una herramienta para mis hobbies. En esta ocasión se trata de un yunque a partir de un pedazo de riel de tren. Muchas horas de un duro pero agradable trabajo. Y, ahora estoy muy contento por haberme registrado en Homemadetools!

    Nice Anvil!!

    You did a great job! How long it take to you?
    I have two pieces of rails to convert into anvils, but I'm not sure how long the base must be. Do it seems to you that it should be longer than the narrow bases we always see? So that way the anvil does not tend to lean to the front or back when it's hammered near the tips?

    ¡Hiciste un gran trabajo! ¿Cuantas horas te costó?
    Tengo dos pedazos de rieles para convertir en yunkes, pero no estoy seguro del largo de la base. ¿Te parece que deberia ser más larga que las bases angostas que siempre vemos para que el sotorte no tienda a inclinarse al frente o atrás cuando se martilla cerca de las puntas?

    Thanks dear Palonso, I think that aesthetically looks better with the base smaller than the work surface and the idea is to hold it tightly to a table to avoid any inclination of the anvil. I'm not sure but I think I spent about 25 hours building it. Luck and success in your attempt. Greetings from Ecuador.
    I have a lot of difficulty to access Homemadetools. Every time I try there are problems with the password and the truth is I'm getting tired of this, a pity, I just entered the forum and I'm already thinking about leaving it.

    Gracias estimado Palonso, pienso que estéticamente luce mejor con la base más pequeña que la superficie de trabajo y la idea es sujetarlo fuertemente a una mesa para evitar alguna inclinación del yunque. No estoy seguro pero creo haber dedicado unas 25 horas en su construcción. Suerte y éxitos en tu intento. Saludos desde Ecuador.
    Tengo mucha dificultad para ingresar a Homemadetools. Cada vez que intento hay problemas con la contraseña y la verdad estoy cansándome de esto, una pena, acabo de ingresar al foro y ya estoy pensando en salir de él.

    Thanks for your answer Ivan. I saw that you started the cutting using a hand saw and then, at the end change for a hand grinder. I think I will start directly with the hand grinder. Don't leave the forum! it's very good and I get wonderful ideas from it. I'm too having problems login on. I have to try at least three times. It wasn't that way before. Something has to be happening. Greetings from Argentina.

    Gracias por la respuesta Ivan. Veo que también iniciaste los cortes con sierra pero al final cambiaste a la amoladora de mano. Creo que lo haré directamente en amoladora desde el principio. No dejes el foro, es muy bueno, yo obtengo ideas excelentes de el. A mi también me cuesta entrar, tengo que hacer por lo menos tres intentos. Antes no era así. Algo les debe estar pasando. Saludos desde Argentina
