    Some more progress.

    What is the sand for? Does it just add weight?

    This looks like a neat project, love all the in progress pictures.

    The sand in the legs is to add mass and absorb the shock of hammering.

    Nice work. I’m looking forward to seeing the anvil in place.

    There are only two ways to do things; the right way and again.

    That is a nice idea. I too like it. I am interested to hear how well it works when you get the stand built.

    I have tested the anvil and stand like it is already, very happy with the result. Not much resonance at all, and god rebound 🙂

    Made a handle today to make the stand mobile:

    Even the handle is a work of art; but that’s what we have come to expect from @rovik. Your skills and attention to detail are definitely to be envied.

    Thanks. I have a dilemma about which wheels to choose. What do you guys think looks best? Big 5″ heavy duty casters or standard car jack casters.

    That is a tough one for sure. The big casters would be make it easier for moving around. They would better on rough surfaces. The bigger casters could be in the way depending on how you mount them to the stand.

    I would go with car jack casters. As they are smaller and will do the same job as the bigger casters. They would look nicer. Along as you are moving the stand around on a smooth surface they will be good to use.

    Tuff one, both are great wheels for different applications , I think I’d go with the car jack ones also , like Greg mentioned, I think the bigger one’s will definitely make it easier , but can also be prone to getting all sorts of things stuck in the red wheels making it difficult to move.
    Good luck, looking forward to seeing the results.

    Yes it is a tough one for sure :). You are right, the car jack casters will look the best. I need now to buy a new cheap car jack to take the wheels of 😉

    Didn’t like the car jack wheels. I think they are to small. Got some bigger cast iron wheels:

    Those wheels look like they will be much better. I like how you have mounted them on the stand.

    I like those wheels better. The wheels come from a car dolly.

    Wow that’s awesome. You are right about the wheels.
    Is that chain on the anvil for a particular reason.

    @boschmanbrian, it is to reduse the resonance and ad weight/mass when hammering.
