Awhile ago I posted pictures of a multi use stand I built.




Here are some things it will hold and ideas for creative alternatives to expensive forming stakes.


I took the end of an old bent 48 Ford I-beam and made a holder for the anvils for my planishing hammer. I drilled the king pin hole to 1" to fit my anvils and welded it to a piece of 2" square tube to fit the holder.


the other end of the axle I cut and made into an anvil. I will probably hold this in a vise so I can use it in any direction.


this is the center of a check ball for a sewage pump. I removed the rubber cover and it makes a nice round stake.

rememeber tools are where you find them. an old pick is very similar shape to some pexto stakes I have seen



add a post to hold it clean the edges and presto! This Idea can be used for many different shapes and materials use your imagination.

Frank, Graham, Roger,
Thanks for the kind words. This site is all about sharing ideas that will help all of us! Roger how did you attaqch the bowling ball to the adapter post? I have my eye on a free one. I am thinking drill a deeper hole into one of the finger holes and glue it onto a steel stub.

Hi Tim:

See the attached file for details on how I attached the Bowling Ball. It was a COLD night when I was doing this so I could not use tooling resin to bond a pin into the thumb hole like you mentioned so I used the same set up I had made to attach the wood blocks.
BTW, if you use this set up, predrill the screw holes in the bowling ball and use some soap as lubricant on the mounting screws.
Roger
