    Made a quick stop by the antiques market early Saturday and finally found a railroad anvil that I could afford, which means not very much. I rarely see them and when I do guys seem to price them like they are made of gold. Going to take a little work to get this one polished on top. Can't wait to pin some razors on this puppy!

    Wow, Garrison-How many DMT's did that eat up? But seriously, what did you use, a belt-sander or similar? That looks slicker than a greased bowling ball!

    Thanks, yeah I used a belt sander until the pits were gone. It ate up a few belts, then I did some hand sanding dry and with wd40 up to 2000 until the scratches were out, then a drill with a buffing wheel and some compound, then hand rubbing with Mother's.

    Sounds about right.!
    Though I used a DA sander after the heavy grt., instead of hand sanding.

    Yeah Right !!
    After polishing that anvil up to that state, the only use it will see is a display stand for your finished razors in photo shoots.
    A hammer won't be allowed within 20 feet of it.
