    Honolulu,, Hi.

    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.

    The wheels came out great,, nice idea on the handle too.

    Thanks.

    How is it to move around??

    Great looking stand all finished and mobile, too.

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

    Not bad considering it is a concrete floor.

    Yes, i will start this evening. I’ll use the same colour as the portable metal bandsaw stand, i build earlier.

    I have also polished the top and the horn of the anvil. Looks more shiny now. To prevent rust, i have soaked it in used engine oil.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Do you put anything acid or anything on it before you paint it? Here in the salt air I always use some Ospho- Phosphoric acid before I paint metal. I just did the wheels of my van, they were rusty and ugly.

    I just use wire wheel on the grinder, that take of all the surfase rust and acetone before painting.

    That’s looking nice. Do you put any thing (UHMWP)Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene or any thing under the feet?

    Thanks. I know that this product is better than what i plan to use. I just use some leftover rubber mat i have laying around.

    That certainly is work to be very proud of. The pride shows in the detailing.

    The rubber feet should work great and more grip. It’s looking super. The paint really makes it pop.
