My first hex anvil. In preparation for the exciting times of making some cold connections with rivets. (Big grin!)
This is a hexagonal steel anvil. It is used as a base for riveting, drilling, and staking small parts. It has been cased harded for long life. It has 15 holes and 5 slots (of varying thickness for making rivets). Measures 2inches, corner to corner. 7/8inch thick. (Model: AN200, made in India).
Now, the next important question: how to use the hex anvil?
How To Use Hex Anvil
Once of the clearest instructions I found was Basic Riveting with Anvil (from FusionBeads). It has full text and pictorial step-by-step instruction on how to use a hexagonal anvil to make rivets for cold connections.
That’s it! Till I have more information, this is a short update & pointer! 😀
