The presence of a full-fledged anvil in a home workshop or at the workplace greatly expands the possibilities for metal processing and the manufacture of various finished products and blanks from it for further processing. Because of its massiveness, buying it in a store will hurt your pocket. To save money, you can make your own anvil out of scrap metal at almost no cost. To do this, it is enough to be able to handle simple tools and be physically prepared.
It will take
- large steel channel;
- steel rod with extension at the end;
- steel plate;
- pieces of reinforcement and rod of different diameters;
- paint, etc.

The process of making an anvil from the remains of a variety of scrap metal
We cut off three blanks from the channel with a grinder: one long and two short ones of the same size. On a long piece, stepping back a certain distance from one end, we saw through the shelves transversely and along the edges lengthwise the back. We remove the cut off fragments of the shelves.

From the steel rod we cut off a cylindrical extension with a blind central hole at the end. Then we divide the rod into three equal parts, and in the cylindrical extension we make a through hole from a blind hole, and drill two longitudinally located holes in the wall.
Closer to the whole end of the channel, we mark a square in the center of the back and drill four holes in the corners. Then, using a round file, we grind the jumpers between the holes and remove the resulting fragment. We process a square hole with a flat file to the desired size.
We put the channel with shortened shelves on the back. On the square hole we install coaxially a cylinder with a through hole, between which and the shelves of the channel we lay segments of a round rod., And the third one rests against the inside of the cylinder.
We weld them together and to the back of the channel along all lines of contact.
Part of the back of the channel without shelves is cut off on both sides into a cone, as well as the side parts of the extreme rods.
On the rods from above with an emphasis on the cylinder, we weld a steel strip in the longitudinal direction. We install and weld two short blanks from the channel on it, pressing them against each other with their backs.
We insert pieces of reinforcement and a bar as tightly as possible into the gaps between the plate and the channels of the channel. We cover the ends of the rods with specially profiled metal fragments and scald everything by welding.
From above, we lay a steel plate between the backs and shelves of parts from channels, and between it and specially profiled metal fragments – two short cylinders. We cut the outer corners of the plate into a cone and also weld it to each other and to the base.
After polishing the horn, areas lying below the formed surface are found. These places are raised by welding and additionally grind, like other parts of the anvil. In the supporting surface at the corners, we drill four holes for attaching the anvil.

We build a hearth from refractory bricks, make a fire, raise the maximum temperature and calcine an anvil in it for the required time. Then quickly lower it into a container of water, constantly adding new portions from the hose.
We grind the cooled anvil again, paint the supporting surfaces and the bottom of the anvil black. Our tool is ready to go.
