Ha! You still remember that?! Indeed, I have kept it with me on every move, though it seems to get heavier every time :) I plan on using it as the anvil for a power hammer currently in design phase in my head. I have another smaller one I am wanting to use for the tup. I went to the scrapyard over here, which I have full free access to (I just tip the loaders) and found some excavator frame channel and some i beam which may serve as the frame, as well as the platform from a metal scale that may serve as the base. Still thinking about air hammer vs. tire hammer or helve style.
