This is just a kicking it around idea..
Why make one when they are so cheap?!

Flat horn which is round is better for shaping shoes..

As we know good tools aren't cheap.. A used anvil in good shape is worth the money.. New anvils are pricey, especially if imported..

Me too.. 1000.00 for a car is way to much.. But I have thought quite often about buying a brand New Rufflinghaus for 4000.00 and change.. Buy once, bleed once..


Thats why I am looking at doing one myself.. I have all the tools, skills and just plum crazy enough..

My anvil design will be a little different.. No cutting shelf.. Round horn made basically the same as the straight tail but with rounded corners, thus making it rounder... Not round right off but rounding out..

One thing a lot of newbies don't realize is a flat in the horn can be a good thing.. the flat can be used to open or to be used to peen a little bit to move more metal..

Also when using the horn for drawing down larger sections like in the hinge making video ideally the material being worked is pinched between the hammer and the horn.. almost like squeezing mud or clay in one's hand.. this will increase the force and move it more thoroughly..

Not sure if anybody picked up on the hinge video but there wasn't a suck back in the middle of the bars because the material was worked to the center and it moved pretty even though out the cross section..


LOts of learning tidbits..

Those ball bearing parallels are slick. Here's a used set of four for $32.

Even new they aren't terribly expensive: http://www.kbctools.com/default.aspx...orname=TE%20CO
