Anvil Made from Scrap:
Skeleton or triangle pieces to anvilThese drawings were made in response to someone asking about using odd shaped flame cut steel scrap. When cutting single rounds from heavy steel plate warehouses often start with a square as that is what they charge the customer for. The left over or skeleton is a square with a hole cut out of it OR four seperate corner pieces. When cutting numerous rounds a trapeziod with concave sides is the result. See J. Naylor's Anvil These are common shapes so they deserve some thought.
Although laminated anvils are not very solid this shape could be stacked from several 2" to 4" (50mm to 100mm) pieces and be quite solid. Use your imagination but remember that compact soild mass is best.
