Re: Shooting Anvils!

Having used anvils as a kid to turn metal into blade, horse shoe or tool, I always wanted to blow one up for kicks. Now that I know how high they go, adn how deep they fall into dirt when they hit it may be something to waste money on later in life.
Ever get the urge to put one in a box and set it on the highway where liberals travel to work?

"Oh jezebel, look at the box, let's smash it, Wheeeeeeeee!" *CRUNCH!*

Reminds me of something my dad used to say, "never drive over a box or anything else in the road because you don't know if it'll mess up your car or not..... although I'd probably run over a cake if I saw one, I mean thats pretty irresistable."

Re: Shooting Anvils!

Anvil tossing is an old sport.
Just need to know where that hunk may land.
Fire works only shower you with ash.

Need bigger safe zone for tossing.

Low cards used for gasket between the two.
Uecher for the high ones.

Be safe, you already have ideas!

Re: Shooting Anvils!

My dad uses this technique for splitting logs that are too big to get into the splitter or too tough that they stall out the Briggs.

He's been on the search for an affordable second anvil to try it with, although, his property is not well suited to this since it's mostly still wooded.

That anvil going hundreds of feet in the air is impressive. I've been there to watch a 500# piece of cherry stump 6' across and 3' tall go tumbling 50' high and it was every bit as awesome!

Re: Shooting Anvils!

Shipping's a bitch on those things.

I've been trying to talk my dad out of his dad's anvil (it was probably his dad's before that). It's a heavy mother fucker.
