$20 DIY Homemade Striking Anvil with Hardy Hole

DIY Homemade Striking Anvil with Hardy Hole
 

via Pask Makes…

I’ve realized I need a hardy hole to help with certain blacksmithing tasks. As my little anvil doesn’t have a hardy hole and the fact a proper anvil is out of my reach, I put my mind to how I could get around it. This is what I came up with and I reckon it will do the job just fine!

I called it a ‘$20 Anvil’ as the steel cost me $5 plus a small amount of mild steel (a couple of dollars), 4 coach bolts and welding wire. $20 would be about correct!
