    I have an anvil I made from a piece of RR track that looks just like the one in the video.

    I’ve always wanted a RR track anvil, just haven’t come across the piece of track to make one.

    I had one of those years ago; I think it’s time I found another.

    There is a welding/fabricating shop nearby that does a lot of repairs to farming equipment. I think I will ask him to cut a piece for me. A little anvil like that is handy for so many things in a shop.

    I do have a small piece of RR track. I found out in my Grandpa’s barn. I think he used as a anvil. I am planning doing something with it.

    Making an anvil is a good choice. Lots of YouTube videos for ideas

    I only have a passing familiarity with metallurgy so maybe someone else can chime in here too.

    If you are using a piece of RR track as an anvil you may want to heat it up to a straw yellow and quench it. Particularly if it is a used piece. Metal fatigues over time and becomes brittle (hardens) so it needs to be drawn back. Sure beats a chunk flying off and hitting you while you’re beating on it. The same goes for fork lift forks and chain chokers. There is a standard period in industry for those to be inspected for work hardening.

    Not sure if it has to be fully annealed and re-tempered, I think they just draw them back a bit to take out the work hardening, but I could be mistaken on that (dang memory) though.

    It is a cheaper way as anvil are pretty pricey. I have watched a few YT videos on making one.

    He has had his problems with that stop. Looks like the design is working very well now.
