Anvil Hardy Tools
This is our collection of different tools to fit your anvil's square hardy hole. Make yourself more productive while forging by using hardy anvil top tools rather than moving out of your forge area. These tools are made for your hardy hole but are often used in your leg vise or in a holed swage block. We offer nearly 50 different tools with square hardy shanks on them for a variety of forging operations. Probably the most universally used hardy tool is a cutting hardy followed by bending forks and round swages. Bottom tools can also be part of this grouping of anvil-top tools. Stock your forging station with these anvil accessories.
Many are available in both 1" and 3/4" Since Hardy holes can be straight or tapered some final fitting may be needed. Most anvil hardy tools were never meant to be tight in the hole. If they are used heavily during the forging process the heat may make the tool swell and get stuck. There should be some movement in the hole.
Standard tolerance on hardy tools can be as much as -0.0625" (1/16").
