Are you going to mount a vise on it ?


That is my intention, but I need to find a good, old, sturdy one first.

That's a good solid table, that will work you to wear it out!! As for the anvil the table will be too high for an anvil. You will want a lower stand for it anyway to get the hammer level with the top of the anvil(so all the energy is transferred to the item your working). if the anvil is too high you will waste a lot of energy and it can cause ergonomic issues(like carpel tunnel and will transfer shock to your arms). So just make a stand lower for the anvil as your next project. I'm sure you will find it more useful by not cluttering up your table too. A blacksmith forum will give you a wealth of info on set up height for an anvil and of course it has a lot to do with your stature. I think you will find the anvil height(top face) works best at a height roughly half way between the elbow and wrist standing straight up.

Are you going to drill and tap in a few locations, so you can secure stops, or hold down clamps?


Sorry that I didn't answer this sooner Will. Somehow this particular post slipped past the radar :confuse: There are already several holes with threads in them, but they're like 1" bolt holes! They will need to be cleaned out, but I believe that whatever I bolt down with them they won't go ANYWHERE! I will also have to drill and tap some for the vise. (when I find a good one that I can afford) I guess to answer your question...I have the means and the ability if the need should arise. It's a great idea and I hadn't thought of doing so, but now if the situation presents, I'll know the solution straight away! Thanks for the suggestion!
