Welding ==> Homemade Mini Anvil


This is a mini anvil that was obtained by welding a rectangular piece of 4140 steel to a narrow gauge railroad rail. I needed it for straightening some stuff. Welded with 1/8" 7018 electrodes at about 150 amps. Welds wirebrushed for better appearance, the whole anvil oiled after cooling down to prevent rusting.
