I've seen mini-documentaries on this on the Discovery Channel or something similar. Looks like a LOT of fun....except these guys were launching anvils 100 ft + in the air. IIRC, competitions of such have a bit of history in the U.S. I'd love to do it. I may be a Bedwetting Yuppie, buy I'm a Redneck Wannabe at heart.

Video? Pics? I'd love to see guys launching anvils up in the air! (and I know a few I'd like to see an anvil land on, cartoon style) [:D]

Come on now, this is educational fun! the purpose was to measure the quality of blasting powder. You would time the duration of the event. A measured quantity of powder was used and the time was a great indicator of the strength. Now I haven't done it but I have set off CO2 cartridges filled with flash powder under inverted 5 gallon paint buckets. Bigger boom and dangerous frags. I do NOT recommend this at all!

What are you guys paying for anvils, these days? I've heard they can cost anywhere from $1 to $5 per pound... there's a renewed interest in them among blacksmith and old tools types...

only 10' means--- NEED MORE POWDER!

Harbor Freight sells cast iron anvils for $50. P/N: 00806-2csa Buy a few of them and piss off the UPS guy!

Dude my anvil cost $1000. I would shoot someone if they blew it up. [edited to add] Its a 200 pounder made in England. Wrought iron with a piece of hard steel forge welded to the top. You can buy QUALITY blacksmithing supplies here: [url]http://www.centaurforge.com/[/url]

[i]"Paging Mr Darwin, Mr Charles Darwin..."[/i] But then, I've been known to play with black powder mortars. And, no, it wasn't me at the AR15.com shoot at Casa Grande that launched the bowling ball stright up at the firing line.... [:O]
