Beep, Beep! Anvil Build (Not for Roadrunner Use)
June 20, 2019
We’re building a benchtop metal shop at Fox.Build, and of course, you need an anvil in any real metal shop!
- Piece of railroad track
Find A Piece of Railroad Track
When I moved into my current house there was a short piece of railroad track in the garage. I’d used it as a weight, but after seeing an online article on making an anvil from a railroad track, I knew what I had to do!
Square off one end
Using a bandsaw, square off one end of the piece of track.
Nice and Neat
Take a moment and admire your work.
Make A Point
Cut out the point with a Sawzall
Knock out the rest with a drill.
Refine the PoInt
Clean up all the rough edges with a grinder.
Smooth Out The Top
Using an endmill, smooth out the top of the anvil.
Ready For Use!
The anvil now resides in the Fox.Build metal shop.
