wish it did, railroad anvils are a good idea but the cost of even a small piece of track is unreasonable around here.Been considering fork lift tines though, they can be gotten for quite a bit cheaper (but then of course I'd have to get someone to take me to the local scrapyard and hope they have some)
Oh definitely, A flat forge will still work fine - the open side and flatness just... well frankly I operate my forge in my crocs because I can't risk my work boots and I reaaaaally wouldn't want hot coals falling down :PIn any case, nice design - now I just need a good DIY anvil and I'll be good to go again, currently all I can do is bending and twisting and very minor forging.please don't do work like this in crocs, it's not safe - wear proper shoes, preferably boots, steel toe if possible.
I would personally have made it slightly convex, a perfectly flat forge like that is imo not really ideal [ /!\ WARNING /!\ This is my personal opinion, not necessarily fact - do not treat it as such. /!\ WARNING /!\ ]
