The copper will get softer if you quench it in water after you heat it (the opposite of what steel does when quenched). Also, you can buy something called "pickle" that is meant for jewelry that will take the oxides off very easily.
Stainless will be a lot harder to work with but it won't rust. It's really up to you

I actually bought a 90 amp flux core welder from them about 2 years ago. It works great, no major problems with it. I only just bought a new welder because the harbor freight one was underpowered for me

The galvanized is worse than the carbon dioxide because you breathe in CO2 all the time and as long as it isn't in huge quantities it doesn't matter, zinc fumes will give you welders lung, which is a lot like the flu, but much much worse.

Thanks for the info! I actually used a piece of railroad track before I made this one, and before that, a little cast iron anvil that I believe came off of some sort of vise. Before that I just used my bench vise. This one was just my thinking of "Oh I have a bunch of huge heavy chunks of steel, why not make an anvil?" I actually only spent about 2-3 days working on this and it was all done for free.
I actually tried forging on this with a 4lb hammer a few days ago and it worked excellently! I made the hole in the stump tight enough that it actually didn't move around. Another reason I'm a little tentative about doing that is because I made another anvil tool that can fit into the stump. If I fill it with lead, I won't be able to get my anvil out and my fuller in.

Yeah, I used a simple venturi propane burner and I upgraded it to a forced air burner with a hair dryer, and was using it in a forge like the king of random's, then I upgraded that with refractory in an old helium tank. Good luck on your projects too and I already watch Man At Arms: Reforged as well as a ton of other maker people on youtube like jimmy diresta
lol I'm a freshman in high school and I just finished making a new forge that I accidentally melted steel in. But I get the fact that your parents don't like fire, mine are always nervous but I always have a bucket of sand, a bucket of water, and a fire extinguisher on hand
Heat treating isn't really that hard, if you have a lot of patience you can use a blowtorch, or dig a hole in the ground with a hairdryer going into it, build a fire and it gets plenty hot. When it gets to a temperature that it is no longer magnetic, dip it in canola oil for about 8-10 seconds (usually preheated oil with another piece of steel) then let cool. After that, just temper it and it should be hardened.

The main problem with an anvil like this is that the face isn't hardened so it will probably get a lot more dings and dents than one that is hundreds of years old that is hardened.

If you are like me and have no wall space in your shop, a way to fix this is to build the harness for the bandsaw but don't put on the angle iron. Figure out some way to make the harness reach below the saw (using square pipe or something) then weld on two pieces of angle iron that will sit flush with the table and you can clamp it down. Ta da!

You can also use a propane torch to do it with steel this thin but I'm not sure if you will be able to temper it because you already put on the wood handle
If you look at the sparks in the picture where he's cutting the blade out, you can see that they have little bursts at the ends which means it is high carbon steel and can be hardened
