    Home Made Anvil

    Hi Guys,
    This is a fast forward video of my home made anvil. It is constructed using 3 sections of railway track as the base with a striker plate on top that I hardface welded for durability. The end result is an anvil that weighs in at 110kgs. It was built for a fraction of the price of a comparable weighted traditional anvil and works perfectly well as you can see in my other forging videos. If you would like to see the full series of videos where I go into detail of the whole design and construction process please visit my YouTube page @ Forge Wright. I do hope you enjoy this video.

    Cheers Andy

    Nice wide plate anvil with a goodly amount of mass as well. Hard facing the plate will mean it is going to last you forever there may be some edge chipping eventually but that is to be expected on any hardened face anvil. I've seen a few 2 track piece anvils but I believe this is the first 3 track. nice touch
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Thanks Frank S, Im very happy with the way it turned out, as you say it has plenty of mass to pound on and is surprisingly stable. It had a bit of a ring to it when I first made the stand and started using it but I have since put 6 mm rubber matting between the anvil and the timber stand as well as between the stand and the concrete floor which quietened it down heaps. Haven't had any edge damage as yet but if it starts to get too worn I will just weld up the new edges. I have never seen a 3 track anvil either, but the concept of having the middle track create the basis of the horn made sense to me and that's why I thought Id give it a go, always love a challenge.
