Rob,

The bull....is the control all mechanical, counter balanced and springs. Really good engineering to pull that off, so smooth and natural.

Very well done, an interesting, and challenging career .. thumbsup2




Thanks for the tour,
Greg


ps Anvil strikes will be dubbed..... is my bet

Hey Greg....yup, all done with counterweight and a few gas springs. Thanks, it was a fun, challenging project.

You may be right about the anvil strikes, I'll update when it happens.

Today was spent cutting up a fiberglass bust of mercury to make him appear to speak. I never know what they are gonna throw at me next!

The anvil looks sweet, and the weathervane would be cool. I'm sure people would be afraid of it falling lol

Here's the finished product...



The finish involved vinegar, gun browning, shellac and a modicum of heat.

And here's the Stupid Hippie hisself showing how light it is...

Awesome work as usual Rob.
That anvil would probably scare the bejesus outta someone if you tossed it at them.
I'm just a guy in a garage with some tools...

Compared to some "anvils" this might be an improvement.
